圣诞节里的绿色商机 Green Business Opportunity at Christmas

Dec. 22, 2009

圣诞节里的绿色商机 (Shèngdànjié lǐ de lǜsè shānɡjī) Green Business Opportunity at Christmas

Christmas is a golden time for many businesses in China to make the most out of the holiday season. On the Wangfujing Street in Beijing on December 16, 2009, 15 meters "环保 (huánbǎo) environmental friendly" Christmas tree was made of thousands of waste beverage bottles. Employees in Shangri-La Hotel made Christmas trees out of waste paper, which attracted many peoples' attention. By doing so, not only do businesses "迎合 (yínghé) cater to" the customers' needs, but also show their "品牌 (pǐnpái) brands" positively.

In fact, companies all over the world "不遗余力 (bùyíyúlì) spare no efforts" in making their products to meet customers' green needs. After all, "关注 (guānzhù) caring about" customers' needs and always putting customers' needs in the first place are the keys to business success. No wonder businesses "瞄准 (miáozhǔn) take aim at" this Christmas opportunity and just like what we say in Chinese: "顾客就是上帝 (gùkè jiù shì shàngdì) Customers are God. "
