EZW launches CSR policy manual
Dubai, August 17, 2011
Dubai-based Economic Zones World (EZW) recently launched a CSR (corporate social responsibility) policy manual which outlines EZW’s policies and ethics and serves as a reference for its stakeholders.
The development of the CSR policy manual is in line with EZW’s ongoing corporate governance and CSR programmes that tie in with the company’s policy of integrating CSR into its overall business model and honouring its social and environmental obligations.
EZW has introduced the manual to provide guidelines to its employees and management, to help them conduct their activities in the most appropriate way in dealing with the customers, partners, colleagues, community and other stakeholders; in accordance with its primary values and ethical standards.
In addition to code of business ethics and standards, the manual also highlights Economic Zones World’s policies on health, safety and environment.
“With the aim of fully integrating CSR values into our day-to-day operations we have developed a comprehensive CSR manual that would help EZW employees deal with Corporate Social Responsibility related issues more efficiently,” said Dr Hamad Al Hashemi, senior vice president, Corporate Communications.
“To make this activity evolving we will be reviewing and updating this manual from time to time to ensure we keep pace with the world trends in CSR initiatives and activities. I am sure with our collective talent and energy; we will remain at the forefront of CSR initiatives, not only in the region but across the globe,” he added.
The company’s CSR strategy and multi-pronged approach targets corporate governance, workplace, marketplace, environment and community. Various pre-planned activities have been undertaken in each of these areas, a statement said.
EZW has been preparing annual reports on the CSR activities it conducts during the year since its inception. In order to become compatible globally it is now changing its reporting format based on GRI standards (Global Reporting Initiative), which is one of the world's most prevalent standards for sustainability reporting. – TradeArabia News Service
