"Integrating Sustainable Social Impact and
“Craftsmanship”, the art, beauty and spirit of craftspersons, or “The Makers”, has always been part of Yip’s Chemical’s business DNA, as the company strives to brighten homes and lives for consumers with high-quality chemical products. In its 50th golden jubilee anniversary, Yip's Chemical extended the spirit of “home” and took a step forward to help the needy, and also promoted and inherited craftsmanship through innovative programmes.
Yip’s Chemical is one of the first batch companies in advocating “Business with Purpose”. Joining hands with SONOVA and Social Ventures Hong Kong, Yip’s Chemical launched “Home is” Craftsman Impact Project which integrates social elements into its business through the strategic deployment of resources and innovative ideas so as to attain a win-win result for the company and society.
Three pillar programmes under “Home Is”:
Providing free health check and stretching classes for painters to support their physical and mental health
Organising workshops with carpenters and colourists to pass on carpentry and painting skills while promoting Maker Spirit
Renovation With Heart
Connecting Yip's Chemical staff and painters to offer families in need with free home improvement services
As a strategic partner, SONOVA worked with Yip's Chemical on programme curation and media management. SONOVA also lined up cross-sector partnerships with medical professionals, like-minded makers, social-purpose organisations and local families to create synergy between the business and the community.
