Since our activities are global and affects many layers of the population, when it comes to social responsibility we act decisively, carefully and with utmost awareness.
Today in many countries corporate social responsibility has become one of the key elements of the business world thanks to the compulsory adaptations pushed by the governments. ACE, surpassing standard procedures, acts proactively to build future-proof social responsibility strategies.
Corporate social responsibility positively affects not only its beneficiary, but the corporations which design the projects and implement them properly and decisively as well. Therefore in ACE, we design and adapt well thought-out, long term social responsibility projects.
"Art Of Trade", an Ode to Metal and Human Cooperation
“Art of Trade” is a piece of art, a sculpture made from aluminium, steel and copper. It was designed by a Turkish artist and fashioned by cooperating craftsmen from China, UK and Turkey using metals originating from Azerbaijan, China and Turkey.
Art of Trade is commissioned by ACE, a warehousing and supply chain management company, providing secure storage and transportation mainly of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and minerals. ACE appreciates the important contribution of the metals used to construct the sculpture to civilisation and also to the Company’s business.
The collaboration of the artist and the various craftsmen in creating the piece symbolises the need for cooperation in the historical Silk Road region. The source countries for the metal used in the production was chosen to symbolize the interdependence of the people living along and around the Route.
Building a Tradition for Help and Understanding
“Art of Trade” is also a first in the series of artworks to be commissioned in the coming years. The project aims to raise money and awareness of issues along and around the Silk Route, partnering with UNICEF Turkish National Committee, to provide philanthropic donations for UNICEF’s work along the Silk Route.
Symphony Of Silk & Metal
The Symphony of Silk and Metal is a musical show about the historical Silk Road and its reinvigoration today. It is also a praise by us, Ace Warehousing & Logistics, of the region and people living there.
The show brings together 12 musicians from 4 countries playing a variety of instruments. The traditional instruments symbolize the cultural heritage of the Silk Road, while, the metal instruments stand for the hope of a peaceful, prosperous and cooperative future; also it is a representation of our business as one of the foremost service suppliers in the metal market of the region. Some metal instruments used in the show are created especially for this performance.
As a part of our ART OF TRADE project the show will visit other major cities along and around the region in the forthcoming years.
