Pleass Global is now in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme to support Sustainable Development Goals.

This was confirmed by Pleass Global Ltd marketing and human Resources Director, Cate Pleass.

She said Pleass Global has a strong involvement with the community and as part of that, they have undertaken a major donor role with the Rotary Water for Life Foundation providing water and sanitation to communities across Fiji.

“Our discussions with UNDP have centred on support of their Sustainable Development Goals and how we may work toward supporting UNDP achieving some of these goals in Fiji,” Ms Pleass said.

“We also have a myriad of company projects relating to the SDGs which we hope to progress during this period of focus,” she said.

“Our first initiative is producing and designing a special label for our VaiWai Natural Artesian Water as a vehicle to promote the SDGs and support the UNDP in its launch phase.

“Pleass Global Limited is thrilled with this achievement for Fiji and the wider Pacific and believes it is recognition of the hard work and focus that has dominated the region in relation to climate change and other environment issues.

She further added that every small part that other organisations can play in supporting UNDP and their SDG’s will assist with exposure, understanding and outcomes.

“We are very pleased to be a part of this.

“Our company values the environment and we strive to work in a sustainable manner in all that we do. Our organic certified land and resources, organic small farm and Kila Eco Adventure Park all are part of our wider environmental strategy where we strive to maintain a balance with nature and undertake activities that preserve the beautiful environment we work in at Namosi.”
