Corporate Social Responsibility Company Policy
One of the defining features of social responsibility is not only in a company’s understanding of how their decisions impact the society and environment, but more importantly their willingness to incorporate social and environment considerations into how they conduct their business.
This includes both transparent and ethical behaviour in sustainable development, and in their compliance with applicable law. It also implies that social responsibility is integral to the organisation and is practiced in its relationships with internal and external stakeholders, suppliers and customers.
Policy brief & purpose
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy refers to our responsibility toward our environment. In recognition and respect of the wider ecosystem in which our company operates – including people, values, other organisations and nature – our social responsibility as a business is to leave the world in a better place than we found it.
This policy applies to our company and its subsidiaries. It may also refer to suppliers and partners.
We want to be a responsible business that meets the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.
Our company’s social responsibility falls under two categories: compliance and proactiveness. Compliance refers to our company’s commitment to legality and willingness to observe community values. Proactiveness is every initiative to promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural environment.
Our company will:
● Respect the law
● Honour its internal policies
● Ensure that all its business operations are legitimate
● Keep every partnership and collaboration open and transparent
We'll always conduct business with integrity and respect to human rights. We'll promote:
● Safety and fair dealing
● Respect toward the consumer
● Anti-bribery and anti-corruption practices

Protecting the environment
Our company recognises that keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to us all. It is in our best interest to take all necessary precautions to protect the natural environment, in doing so, promoting sustainability. We endeavour to follow best practices when disposing garbage and using chemical substances, and are advocates for the use of more sustainable packaging. Stewardship will also play an important role.
