Borneo Bulletin's Deputy Editor, James Kon, walked into the office one day with two pieces of A4-sized paper in his hand and said: "I need two people to go to Temburong with HSBC for a 'Climate Camp'. Who wants to go?"

We immediately signed up for the assignment, as we were sure that it would be an experience of epic proportions. We were right.

HSBC staff, including the bank's Manager of Corporate Social Responsibility, Lim Boon Teck, were among those who signed up for the trip to Kuala Belalong Field Study Centre on October 2.

According to Boon Teck, it was the third time that HSBC has organised such a trip. A large number of HSBC staff from all over the country expressed their interest in the trip, as they were keen to learn more about the Climate Change Partnership with CTFS and Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI), as well as its collaboration with Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD).
