Corporate Social Responsibility:
At Asia Jute our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the continuing commitment by our business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.
Today Asia Jute is operating in a market place where stakeholders expect and demand that their Jute Products business performs its operations in a more responsible way. We are adopting standards of accountability, transparency, and sustainability. We are recognizing the benefits of encouraging responsible business practices and reducing reputational risk through a responsible and sustainable model called Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
CSR is not a new approach. But corporate governance and environmental regulations have forced companies to consider CSR as key strategic initiative.
Under CSR, Asia Jute is recognized certain elements of our business environment, such as:
- Commercial issues of compliance and risk management
- Legislation impacting business operations – pollution and environmental issues
- Investors’ expectations for CSR performance indices
- The influence and expectations of stakeholders such as non-governmental organizations and lobbying groups
- The basis for competitive advantage and brand reputation
