CSR and the Environment

Our Approach to CSR

Comparative Tables with Global Principles

We believe that a corporation must continuously check whether its business activities are aligned with the demands of society.
We bolster our CSR review cycle by adhering to regional, national, and international guidelines and principles, such as those provided by the UN Global Compact and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
