For us, sustainable development is broadly understood as a process that must consider simultaneously economic, environmental and social factors, which requires a systemic approach to policy, with an understanding of complex linkages, synergies and trade-offs among these three policy domains as graphically shown. For EUMEC, the notion of sustainable development involves a mutually reinforcing relationship between development of the environment, the economy and the society.
Our primary focus of corporate social responsibility is the environment, we are aware of the fact that businesses, regardless of size, have a large carbon footprint. Any steps we can take to reduce those footprints are considered both good for our company and society as a whole.
“European companies have really led the way on environment efforts, such as green energy usage, eco-friendly office and travel policies, and ensuring that businesses take a responsibility for controlling if their net impact is positive or negative,” said Richard Stevenson, head of corporate communications at ecommerce platform.
Labor: EUMEC and MDACI always endeavor to treat their employees fairly and ethically.
Business: We, at EUMEC and MDACI, our ethical and social responsibility concerns are codified as laws and regulations that encourage our businesses to conform to society’s standards, values, and attitudes. Our staff and managers are always expected to obey these laws and regulations.
