Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

BJ-Gear shows corporate social responsibility and creates value by managing social, environmental and ethical challenges in accordance with internationally recognised principles for social responsibility.

Social responsibility

 

In October 2011, the European Commission published a new corporate social responsibility policy.

Here, the social responsibility is defined as: “The responsibility of enterprises for their impacts on society”.

To fully measure their social responsibility, enterprises “should have in place a process to integrate social, environmental, ethical human rights and consumer concerns into their business operations and core strategy in close collaboration with their stakeholders”.

CSR activities are the activities that the company should undertake to respect internationally recognised CSR principles. There is a need for companies to document, communicate and, not least, systematise the things they do to avoid having a negative impact on CSR principles, including human and labor rights, the environment and anti-corruption.

This may include:

  • To impose requirements on suppliers to comply with human and labor rights
  • To work with suppliers to improve social and environmental conditions
  • To work systematically with environmental and climate management
  • To work to improve employee relationships and work environment internally within the company
  • To develop new products or services that include a social or environmental dimension
