The theory of Corporate Social responsibility inspires corporations to take notice of not only of the economic and financial dealings in a company, but also the social and environmental consequences.
Lars Laj is very aware of the value of corporate social responsibility within a business. It is very important for us to keep the balance between financial success and environmentally responsible practices. We constantly work to control and reduce volatile air emissions through pollution prevention programs. The company obeys all environmental laws. We also work to protect natural resources by using materials, energy and water efficiently.
Lars Laj also endeavours to preserve endangered timber areas. The company has agreed to give preference to wood that has come from forests managed in a responsible way and to eliminate wood purchases from endangered regions of the world.
Another aspect of the Corporate Social Responsibility in our company, is to involve our employees in a corporate policy which clearly defines child labour as unacceptable – both in our company’s own operations and throughout the supply chain. In our contracts with suppliers or other parties with whom it wishes to collaborate, we include a clause that states that child labour is prohibited.
In order to keep a high standard of the product, we make binding agreements with our suppliers to ensure that they, in turn, make sure their suppliers and sub-contractors meet the same standard.
In our company, increased commitment towards men and women equality is our priority. Lars Laj promotes equality on the labour market and equal economic independence for women and men. The principle of equal salary for equal work or work of equal value, equality in decision-making and dignity.
Lars Laj employs the disabled people. We make an effort to improve the conditions of working, training, integration, development and job retention. Our work teams learn to work with people that are different, whatever their differences may be. Integrating with disabled people who have severe difficulties often has positive consequences on workers’ behaviour and product manufacturing.
Our first concern is to develop the process for both environmental stewardship and sensitivity to social issues.
We are pride to operate the business in a manner of the CSR. We will continue our efforts in this direction.
