Corporate Sustainability of SVI

Corporate Sustainability of SVI

Corporate sustainability is a new and evolving corporate management paradigm. Although the concept acknowledges the need for profitability, it differs from the traditional growth and profit-maximization model in that it places a much greater emphasis on environmental, social, and economic performance..

For us at SVI, corporate sustainability is all about best practice. It is about managing the organization with an eye to the future and dealing with the people and resources fairly and positively.

Ever since, SVI has always been committed to protecting the environment. We at SVI exert conscious efforts to drive reductions in our environmental impacts while developing environment-related solutions such as EnProtect to help the government and private sector in addressing the environmental concerns.

SVI also believes in the value of impact sourcing, rather than just outsourcing. SVI understands the importance of providing opportunities to the marginalized sector of the society. Including persons deprived of liberty (PDL), and persons with disabilities (PWD). 

We at SVI have developed our processes and solutions based on these pillars of corporate sustainability.

Four pillars of corporate sustainability

Sustainable Development

Sustainable development can be defined as “the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.”

That being said, the achievement of sustainable development could not be simply left to government regulators and policy makers. SVI always strives to be more proactive in balancing this economic drive with social equity and environmental protection.

 

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept that refers to the role of business in society. It is based on the principle that managers have an ethical obligation to consider and address the needs of society, not merely to act solely in the interests of the shareholders or their own self-interest.

While we believe that sustainable development is a worthwhile goal, SVI remains steadfast in its ethical responsibility  to help society move in that direction.

 

Stakeholder Theory

The basic premise of stakeholder theory is that the stronger your relationships are with other external parties, the easier it will be to meet your corporate business objectives; the worse your relationships, the harder it will be. Strong relationships with stakeholders are those based on trust, respect, and cooperation.

SVI strengthens its relationships with stakeholders and external groups in order to develop a competitive advantage, helping the company meet its business objectives.

 

Corporate Accountability

Corporate accountability refers to the act of holding companies responsible for the non-financial areas of their impact on people and the planet. This examines the quality of corporate citizenship by companies regarding its internal practices and communities it affects through its work.

We at SVI believe that profits have to be earned in an ethical and legal manner to be sustainable, ensuring compliance with the laws and regulations of the place and the industry in which SVI operates.
