Corporate Social Responsibility
- From The Heart

At INK, we believe that in everything we do, we should do it from the heart. In Chinese, it is called 用心. 用心设计、用心经营. That's how we can add value to our customers, to our communities. So, no surprise our corporate social responsibility program is called 'From The Heart' CSR Program.

We want everyone from INK to make a real difference in everything we do. We aim to add value to the community, to help the underprivileged and to bring more care and joy, from the heart.
