What is Corporate Social Responsibility

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) policy outlines our efforts to give back to the environment and the community.

Policy Elements

  • Compliance refers to our commitment to legality and willingness to observe community values.
  • Proactiveness is every initiative to promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural environment.must refrain from sending emails to someone after receiving a request to stop.

We will:

  • respect the law
  • honour our internal policies
  • ensure that all our business operations are legitimate
  • keep every partnership and collaboration open and transparent.

Business Ethics

We will always conduct business with integrity and respect to human rights. We will promote:

  • safety and fair dealing
  • respect towards the consumer
  • anti-bribery and anti-corruption practices.

Examples of our Corporate Social Responsibility

Protecting the environment

We recognise the need to protect the natural environment. Keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to all. We will always follow best practices when disposing of rubbish and using chemical substances. Stewardship will also play an important role.

Protecting people

We will ensure that we:

  • don’t risk the health and safety of our employees and community
  • avoid harming the lives of local and indigenous people
  • support diversity and inclusion.

Human rights

We are dedicated to protecting human rights. We are a committed to equal opportunity employer and will abide by all fair labour practices. We will ensure that our activities do not directly or indirectly violate human rights in any country (e.g. forced labour).

Proactiveness/Donations and aid

We may preserve a budget to make monetary donations. These donations will aim to:

  • advance the arts, education and community events
  • alleviate the need of others.

Volunteering

WE will encourage our employees to volunteer. They can volunteer through programmes organised internally or externally. We may sponsor volunteering events from other organisations.

Preserving the Environment

Apart from legal obligations, we will proactively protect the environment. Examples of relevant activities include:

  • recycling
  • refraining from printing hard copies of documents unless entirely necessary
  • conserving energy
  • using environmentally-friendly technologies.

Supporting the Community

We may initiate and support community investment and educational programs. For example, we may provide support to non-profit organisations or movements to promote cultural and economic development of global and local communities.

Learning

We will actively invest in Research & Development (“R&D”). We will be open to suggestions and listen carefully to ideas. We are committed to the United Nations Global Compact. We will readily act to promote our identity as a socially aware and responsible business. Management must communicate this policy on all levels. Managers are also responsible for resolving any CSR issues.
