Seagate Supports China National "Green City Building" Program

As part of its ongoing social responsibility efforts, Seagate Technology today announced its support for the "Building Green City" project, a national environmental program that aims to create a healthier living environment through educating citizens on the importance of environmental protection.

For the project, Seagate will sponsor trash cans, as well as books and pamphlets on environmental protection to Wuxi Meili Middle School, Wuxi New District Primary School and Wuxi Fangqian School. The program will be administered by volunteers from Seagate's EHS (Environment, Health & Safe) department, who will impart their knowledge and expertise on environmental protection to students from these schools.

"Seagate truly understands that in order to raise a generation of citizens who are environmentally aware and responsible, programs should be put in place at schools to educate the youth," said Cui Fengshan, the deputy director general of Wuxi Environment Bureau. "We are thankful to Seagate for their support of our program."

"Seagate is committed to long-term sustainable growth achieved through responsible environmental, workplace and operating practices," said Johnny Lau, vice president of Seagate's China operations. "We take great pride in our corporate environmental practices as well as in our community outreach efforts designed to inform and educate children about the importance of protecting and preserving the planet for the generations to come."
