Knight Piésold Argentina Educates Local Community on Sustainable Environmental Practices

October 11, 2019, Mendoza, ArgentinaKnight Piésold Argentina, in collaboration with Ducha de Sol, coordinated a one-day workshop on September 27 to educate the local community of Rodeo on sustainable environmental practices. The workshop took place at the Albergue School in Rodeo, the main town in the department of Iglesia, located in the province of San Juan.

Students, teachers, and interested community members attended the workshop, learning about recycling and reusing plastic waste to assemble water and solar air heaters. The workshop also focused on fostering innovative thinking and environmental responsibility—cornerstones in Knight Piésold’s corporate culture. Ducha de Sol provided heaters for the workshop and donated two heaters that were installed and remain in operation at the school.

Ducha de Sol, which the company has supported with past initiatives, is an NGO based in the province of Mendoza that aims to mitigate social, environmental, and economic issues through clean energy. More than 100 volunteers run a socio-environmental project to provide hot water and air heating for homes to improve hygiene and quality of life in local communities. Water and solar air heaters are produced using recyclable and low-cost materials.

Knight Piésold Argentina continues to work on advancing its social responsibility program. This year, the program has improved by supporting causes that are important to clients and by increasing interaction with communities where the company has offices in: Mendoza, San Juan, and Neuquén.
