Social Responsibility Policy

Policy Brief & Purpose

Our Corporate Social Responsibility company policy refers to our responsibility toward our environment. We understand we are not an island – we are part of a larger system of people, values, other organizations and nature, and our actions often affect more than ourselves. The social responsibility of a business is to give back to the world, just as it gives to us.

What Is Corporate Social Responsibility?

Our Corporate Social Responsibility company policy outlines our efforts to give back to the world as it gives to us.

Scope

This policy applies to our company and its subsidiaries. It may also refer to suppliers and partners, or how we choose our suppliers and partners, where appropriate.

Policy Elements

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 promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural environment.

There will also be elements of this policy present or built upon within our Customer Charter.

Examples of Corporate Social Responsibility

Protection Of The Environment

CARBON IT SERVICES recognizes the need to protect the natural environment – keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to both current and future generations. We will always follow best practices when disposing waste materials and using chemical substances. Stewardship will also play an important role to ensure this is adhered to.

Protection Of People

We will ensure that we, and those we choose to use as suppliers or partners:

  • Do not risk the health and safety of our employees, their employees, or members of the community
  • Avoid harming the lives of local and indigenous people
  • Support diversity and inclusion
  • Have an active Modern Slavery Policy in place

Proactiveness

Donations And Aid

CARBON IT SERVICES may preserve a budget to make monetary donations. These donations will aim to:

  • Advance the arts, education and community events
  • Alleviate those in need

Volunteering

CARBON IT SERVICES encourages its employees to volunteer for good causes both in local communities, and further afield, in programs organized either internally or externally. CARBON IT SERVICES may choose to sponsor volunteering events from other organizations at times that we feel fit our values and benefit others.
