Making a positive impact through giving back to society can be very rewarding.

Honeywell CEO Vimal Kapur and the company's Charlotte-based Futureshapers kicked off its Global Volunteering Month volunteering at non-propfit organization Envision Charlotte that works to strengthen economic competitiveness, environmental sustainability, and positive community impacts across the Charlotte area.

"Sorting plastics, glass and weaving textiles into baskets, they breathe new life into used items and promote sustainability locally," said Honeywell commenting on some of the work being undertaken. 

Collaborating and participating in volunteering work

"November is Global Volunteering Month. As a company we have to be responsible as a force for good for our community and having a dedicated month is a great way for all of us to remember that, and a great way for all of us to collaborate and participate in volunteering work," explained Honeywell's CEO.

"Honeywell's volunteering effort and our community work has been very much focused on two broad areas so far, which are STEM education and anything to do with humanitarian relief. We started progressing that to sustainability over the last year or so. Why sustainability? Because we want to be a contributing factor to address the problem of climate change - a lot of our offerings do that naturally, and we want to extend that to our volunteering work."
