OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PROGRAMME
The EU has defined CSR as ‘a concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and their interaction with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis’. Amdaris believes in ‘not only fulfilling legal expectations but also going beyond compliance and investing more into human capital, the environment and the relations with stakeholders. Amdaris business decision-making is linked to ethical values, compliance with legal requirements, and respect for people, communities and the environment.
The Nature of Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not just about philanthropy as some people might think. CSR is more about how a company works and makes its profit whilst ensuring that they contribute to the well-being of society at the same time, while philanthropy is spending some of the profits on charitable causes. Philanthropy is just one of the many CSR aspects. The Co-CEOs of the company have a clear view of the triple bottom line performance: profit-people-planet and are committed to legality and willingness to respect the community’s regulations and needs. They have a responsibility for the formulation of policies on ethical behavior, employee welfare, social issues and environmental issues. The board monitors the effectiveness of these strategies. In order to uphold the principles of sustainable development we took several commitments at Amdaris that we believe will provide us economic stability and viability, have a positive impact on the society we live in and protect the environment.
“As a part of the community, we believe that when our business is doing well and have sustainability we can support the community, thus helping in the promotion of our social corporate responsibility that we consider more than some of our duty. In these terms, we want to contribute to our employees, community and environment happiness. With this example we allow each one of our employees to engage in CSR activities and support together with the cause in which we believe.”
Vlad Nanu & Andy Rogers, Co-CEO of AMDARIS
