Taking Continued Precautions

Out of respect for our team members and their families as well as our clients, partners and communities, Acorn International will continue to take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection until such time as we believe it is safe to ease these restrictions.  We recognize that some of the jurisdictions in which we operate are starting to lift restrictions, and we will continue to evaluate risks and appropriate measures daily, consistent with (first) our SHE management system, (second) our contractual obligations, and (third) the CDC guidelines.

All team members are continuing to work from home, and we are continuing to defer all non-essential travel and meetings.  On a daily basis, we continue to deliver the high-quality services that we and our clients expect of Acorn International.  We meet on-line regularly as a team, we are in frequent contact with our clients and partners, and we are continuing to conduct a robust business stream productively, albeit remotely.  And most importantly, safely.

We look forward to a time when we can join together in groups to solve social and environmental risk challenges together, face to face.  Until then, we will continue to apply new approaches and technologies to do so remotely.
