Social Responsibility

How we give back?

For the companies within the group, giving back and empowering the communities that they work in is an integral part of what they do. Our Corporate Social Responsibility leads our initiatives to operate in a socially, economically, financially, and environmentally responsible way across the varying communities where we work.

Our corporate culture reflects our desire to operate responsibly in all the sectors that contribute to sustainable growth: economy, employees, society, and environment. 

We have long been active in a whole range of socially responsible activities, from employees volunteering in their local environment to long-term programs for Health and Education.

We have an enduring commitment to managing the environmental and social impact of our business while recognizing that our success is closely linked to the success of the communities in which we live and work.


Throughout our long history from 2006 onwards, we have undertaken the role of “responsible citizen”, and we will ensure to continue holding that true moving forward.
