Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program refers to our involvement that goes beyond our immediate environment. The existence of our company is not self-contained; it is part of a larger system of people, organizations and nature. The social responsibility of a business is to return to the world what it gave us.
This policy applies to Qbig itself, other Straatweg Group companies and may also apply to our suppliers and strategic business partners.
We continually aim to be a responsible company that meets the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.
Our company’s social responsibility falls under two categories: compliance and proactiveness. Compliance refers to the commitment of our company to meet legal policy regulations and our willingness to observe community values. Proactivity is any initiative to promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural environment.
Our company will:
- Respect the law
- Honor its internal policies
- Ensure that all its business activities are legitimate
- Keep all partnerships and collaborations transparent and accessible
We will always conduct business with integrity and respect for human rights business, promoting:
- Safety and fair trading
- Respect towards our customers, suppliers and business partners
- Anti-bribery and -corruption practices
Protecting the environment
Our company recognizes the need to protect the natural environment. Keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is an asset to all. We proactively strive to reduce our carbon footprint by:
- Providing our customers with circularity in their use of plastics
- Implementing the circularity principle ourselves where possible
- Bringing our manufacturing closer to our customers and thus, significantly reducing the ocean freight carbon emissions.
