In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Keter Group CEO Alejandro Pena gifted a school garden with outdoor furniture to provide teachers with more opportunities to relax outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather. The gift is part of Keter’s ongoing effort to give back to the communities where it creates jobs. “With projects like this one and other initiatives we have put into play across the world, we are demonstrating our commitment not only to provide employment but also to invest in communities as a catalyst for social and economic mobility,” said Pena. Keter donated 25 items to North Miami Elementary School for their garden. The company is a valuable company in sustainability within the furniture industry. The company is working on more sustainability in its operations to be green.
Pasquale Iannone, Keter’s CFO, is used to working on spreadsheets with big numbers. People donated money to build a garden at a Miami school. For the CFO of Keter, the company under the leadership of CEO Alejandro Pena, this was one of his first significant projects. The elementary school’s gardening program got a new lease on life thanks to Keter, Iannone, and the people who donated over $4,000 to the cause. The company is a large corporation in the furniture industry with locations around the world. Alejandro Pena has built a company that is green in both its products and its operations. For example, Pena’s company makes custom furniture out of recycled plastic. He will use recycled materials at Keter if available while maintaining quality standards for products such as outdoor furniture.
The school’s garden is now where children can learn about the healthy benefits of vegetables, care for plants and harvest their food. “We are standing in your garden, and we are proud to be part of the team helping you bring your dream to life,” said Pena. Under CEO Alejandro Pena’s leadership, the company has been committed to improving its presence in communities where it creates jobs and investing in sustainability.
