Social Responsibility
 
Introduction
Following is our corporate sustainability strategy in the areas of Environmental Impact and Social Wellbeing – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). This strategy applies to the Company which includes Chandra Group and all of its subsidiaries.
 
Link between Sustainability and CSR
Chandra Group recognizes and appreciates the link between Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability. Interlinked within the three major common goals of Social Wellbeing, Environmental Protection and Economic Prosperity are the equally important, and mutually supportive goals of Health and Safety, Diversity and Inclusion, Sustainable Development and Community Investment. Chandra believes none of these goals is exclusive of the other, in fact, their mutual well-being is mandatory for true corporate success and sustainability.
» Communities prefer companies that create jobs and incomes, and contribute to the economic and social cohesion that builds the neighborhoods where people want to live and work.
» Employees prefer to work for companies that provide a healthy and safe environment, and whose values align with theirs.
» Customers prefer to buy from companies that share their values.
» It is also, simply, the right thing to do.
 
CSR within Chandra Group
Chandra strongly emphasizes inclusion of real, measurable and sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility considerations in all business ventures and decisions. Issues include (but are not limited to) :
» The safety of our people, contractors and customers.
