Our focus is on developing a sustainable future for generations to come, so we have established a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy that reflects our commitment to a responsible and environment-sound growth alongside the communities we are operating in.
Following our mission to become one of Fortune’s Most Admired Companies by 2020, we put sustainability and responsibility in the centre of decisions we make, technologies we create and the way we improve our business model, products and services. Unified in those shared values, we aspire to create a Proud Global Doosan that improves quality of life for people and communities around the globe.
With respect to the implementation of the CSR strategy, we have developed three key pillars our activities are built on: Education, Sustainability and Community.
Education embraces a commitment to people development and to the promotion of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects amongst young people. This helps us to inspire people to pursue professions in engineering and to provide the energy solutions of tomorrow. With a regular engagement in a Germany-based initiative called Girls’ Day, we aspire to encourage young women to start a career in those typically male-dominated disciplines.
Sustainability efforts focus on minimising the environmental impact of the company’s operations and prioritising product quality, health and safety. Mindful of our responsibility for a cleaner and greener future for generations to come, we have developed products and technologies that increase energy efficiency while minimising pollutants. Simultaneously, we have established our Supplier Code of Conduct that requires our suppliers to follow ethical and sustainable behaviours.
Our commitment to the local community aims to provide benefits to people suffering from difficult living conditions, helping to create a better environment and quality of life for them. Our CSR-team coordinates a range of initiatives for regional charities including Neander Diakonie or Ratinger Tafel, who support people in financial or health needs.
Through our CSR-strategy, we’ll be admired for the work we do, our respect for people, communities and the environment and last but not least for being united in our shared goals and values across all Doosan businesses.
