Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy refers to our responsibility toward our community. Our company’s existence is not lonely. It’s part of a bigger system of people, values and other organizations . The social responsibility of our business is to give back to the world just as it gives to us.
What is corporate social responsibility?
Corporate social responsibility is all about companies playing their responsible part in society and giving back to society, and a big part of that is fundraising for worthy causes. Companies, customers and communities can and should thrive together.
This policy applies to our company and its subsidiaries.
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 help communities.
