on october 14, 2016, zhao lijun, chairman & ceo of poten environment group co., ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “poten enviro” or “the group”) delivered a speech entitled “go farther with the common goal”, reviewing the corporate values with nearly 2,000 employees nationwide and encouraging them to forge ahead together under the guidance of a long-sighted culture. the organizers and some contestants of the environmental innovation & entrepreneurship challenge were also invited to be present at the meeting.
set out ahead of time
“today’s poten enviro needs a greater vision. taking the wings of dreams, we will work harder and go more down-to-earth”, mr. zhao stated his expectation for the entire staff of the group.
currently, the environmental protection sector is soaring up with unprecedented passion, though most environmental companies come in small sizes and have their resources scattered widely. so mr. zhao made a bold prediction that the greatest environmental firm of the world would definitively be born in china within the coming 20 years.
“how far we can reach depends on what goes on in our mind rather than our physical power. if we can aim high enough, we are able to set the future trend.”
greatness stems from altruism
the criterion for determining whether a company is great lies in how big it dreams rather than how large it comes. in the view of mr. zhao, altruism, or benefiting others, is the best way to aim high and dream big.
“poten enviro’s development should bring opportunities to more people and create value for the entire society. the chinese environmental protection sector needs to knit itself together before it can go faster and create a better environment,” mr. zhao stated. “the goal of poten enviro should be bold enough to unify the whole industry together.”
by taking advantage of its comprehensive strength that covers the entire industry chain, poten environ is leading the environmental companies from different sub-sectors to co-existence and joint growth. with superior resources across the industry chain pooled together and allocated efficiently, they can generate innovative power much needed by the chinese environmental protection industry for a new round of upgrade.
go farther with the common objective
without a grand goal, it is difficult to attract more people to join you. but if not self-conscious, you can hardly win others’ trust.
“at the core of an organization are people. what people can do is determined by their mentality, which is mainly reflected through cultural and behavioral self-consciousness. as chinese philosopher wang mingyang ever said, ‘it is much harder to defeat the devil in your heart than that in the mountain.’ so our initiative to realize greater development must commence from changing our inner side. since cognition and action are unified, what you do is consistent with how you think for sure,” mr. zhao commended.
in the past 22 years, no matter how greatly the external environment changed, poten enviro has always stayed on the right track. with the unswerving commitment to its operational philosophy, the group has built up a brand image that values quality, speed and trust, winning the wide recognition from all walks of life. as more like-minded people joined it, poten enviro has its strength expanding rapidly.
in the future, to realize its great ambition for an integrated environmental protection sector, mr. zhao held, every single person in the group should fully recognize the corporate culture from the bottom of their heart, comprehend the corporate spirit of “forging ahead with great virtue and strong will”, and bear in mind the vision, mission, common values and operational philosophy of the group. consistent comprehension usually develops into cultural self-consciousness which will turn into proactive action.
poten enviro extends a sincere invitation to those who share the common goal and cultural awareness with it. (source: news center of the strategic development department of the group)
