With that in mind, what’s next for Golden Arrow?
This is a company of 34 years with more than 2,600 employees that all have one single heart. For Golden Arrow today, we want the best for our people and we want to grow to be a global company with more variety and affordability for our customers around the world.
We have a five-year strategy roadmap to go into global locations and offer our services to more diversified customers and industries. We’re calling for much more in terms of business opportunities, along with internal talent, to empower our solution for every corner of the world.
The dreams that we have are big, but the resources are quite limited. We continue to identify global partners such as Apple, who have a strong impact, and urge other industrial leaders to join this tech force. We’re hoping this transformation in our paradigm will take place faster than it is today. Looking at the past five years, just in terms of the green synergy or the impact that we can drive—in terms of the water we have recycled, or in terms of the overall trees we have saved, in talking about the carbon footprint that we have reduced, I think that we’re happy to see the tangible result. We want that result to be much bigger.
We only have one planet—based on the way that we’re consuming our resources, we would need 2.4 Earths by 2050. From where Golden Arrow is today, I believe that the major burden is how we resource the next 30 years. What do we learn from the past 30 years about how we look at the world, and provide the solutions, and continue the innovation ahead of us? We believe that our biggest competitor is Golden Arrow yesterday. We continue to look for green factory solutions in terms of recycling 100% of the world’s water and we continue to invest in green infrastructure. In May this year, we jointly committed to investment of $300 million into green infrastructure film, working together with Apple and a leading European investor.
We hope that, with everything we’re doing, actions speak louder than words.
