As a reputable company, we have a long-term commitment to the many people we touch - our employees, our customers and consumers, the workers who make our product and their communities, the suppliers who partner with us, as well as the global community. We recognise that these people and their representatives are our biggest asset and our partners.
Our core values relating to any of our activities are integrity, dialogue, transparency, excellence and innovation.
Through our programme, we intend to have a positive impact on the people we touch through our operations.
We encourage open discussions with any organisation wanting to improve our current working conditions and conditions within the communities we work in. Our programme will focus our attitudes, procedures and practices on the issues that are important to our stakeholders.
OUR PROGRAMME DETAILS
We have long-term relationships with our suppliers. We work with them to make lasting improvements to working, social and environmental conditions. Our programme is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) core labour standards and other relevant guidance, good practice and regulations.
Our programme deals with issues important to our stakeholders, such as working conditions, livelihoods of the people who make our products, community involvement and the reduction of the environmental impact resulting from the manufacture, distribution and sale of our products.
When we deal with any issues raised by our stakeholders, we aim to keep them involved. We will continually improve our programme by seeking feedback and input from our suppliers and stakeholders.
OUR PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION
Our programme is continuous with key focus areas and performance targets for each coming year. At the end of each year, we will evaluate and report on our progress and determine the focus to make a difference in the following year.
