We are committed to the United Nations Global Compact. And we understand CSR as a process to integrate social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into our business’s operations and core strategy, in close collaboration with our stakeholders – while complying with laws, ethical standards and international norms.
We are steadfast in our commitment to uphold these standards by obeying the law, respecting human rights, paying taxes, providing job opportunities, respecting our employees, abiding by fair labour practices, respecting regional cultures, treating other businesses responsibly, handling our customers responsibly, respecting the environment, developing the health and knowledge of children, being transparent in our dealings and communication, and engaging with stakeholders.
To this end, we reject gender discrimination, corrupt practices, and refrain from benefitting from child labour or forced labour. We favour suppliers who abide by these principles, and try to exclude those that do not.
