September 4th, 2017 – POK and Youth


A creative partnership

The POK® company is involved in environmental protection by recycling its waste, saving energy… The ISO 14001:2004 certification testifies to this. But it is sometimes complicated to find recycling solutions for certain products. For example, catalogues from previous years. So POK turned to the youth of the city of Nogent-sur-Seine to find a solution that was both innovative and creative…

The POK company decided to order from the teenagers of the youth club a sculpture composed of catalogues… And it is with great enthusiasm that these amateur artists accepted the challenge. The instructions were simple. It was a matter of designing a sculpture, using the catalogues provided by the company POK and within 2 months.

In addition to recycling our catalogues, the main aim was to raise awareness of environmental protection, fire-fighting and why not start firefighting careers. By carrying out this type of action, POK wishes to create a strong link with the city of Nogent-sur-Seine.

The sculpture unveiled on August 31st, 2017 could not satisfy us more. Indeed, these young sculptors opted for a creation representing the three letters, which make up the name of the company, extinguishing a fire. The presentation of the sculpture to the POK company was an opportunity to thank the teenagers for their involvement and seriousness in this mission. Then the work of art went to the company’s head quarters to be exhibited.

Let us hope that the success of this partnership will give ideas to companies in the city of Nogent-sur-Seine and encourage them to carry out new initiatives.
