Population ageing is becoming an increasingly urgent social issue and a strategic task. Materials manufacturer Covestro is not only committed to developing innovative solutions to cope with various development trends, which includes ageing, but also actively fulfilling corporate social responsibility through its industry expertise. Recently, Covestro and sports flooring manufacturer Jiangmen Changhe Chemical Industry Group Co., Ltd. cooperated on providing and installing a brand-new safety flooring for the Shenjiang Nursing Home in Shanghai. The flooring solution provides a healthy and safe environment for the elderly, while also making the nursing house look cozy with the colorful coating decoration.
Holly Lei, President of Covestro China, said, “this nursing home flooring project is not only another practical action of Covestro to actively implement corporate social responsibility in China, but also a concrete measure for us to take advantage of our material expertise to help improve the quality of life and give back to the society.”
Shenjiang Nursing Home, located in Jinqiao, Pudong New Area, covers an area of more than 10,000 square meters and has 252 beds. The project included the repainting of the nursing home’s laundry room and outdoor corridor area, where the elderly residents frequently hold activities, requiring the materials to have higher friction coefficient, good mildew and bacteria resistance, as well as scratch resistance and low odor. Additionally, it must minimize the impact on the elderly and employees during the construction period to the lowest.
