Corporate Social Responsibility Policy

Eterna Lighting’s Corporate Social Responsibility Policy

Our Definition

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept whereby we recognise that our business operations and processes may have an impact on social, economic, and environmental issues outside of the workplace. It also demonstrates our commitment to ensuring and maintaining socially responsible behaviour in our organisation.

Our Policy

We are aware that the running of our businesses will, in many ways, affect our place of work, the community and the wider environment in which we operate. We believe that the way we run our businesses can and should make a positive difference in these areas and we aim to ensure that continued authentic efforts are made to achieve that. We have aligned our policy with the environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria defined originally by the United Nations in the Principles for Responsible Investment in 2006, as well as our company objectives.
