Our ESG strategy

Our People

Our people play an essential role in our ESG strategy. Without our dedicated employees, we wouldn’t have been able to run our business and grow for the past years. The same counts for working together with our suppliers and customers. At the same time, we realize that our operations influence the lives of communities around us and so we want to work together with them to create a positive impact.
