Sustainable Development Committee
To establish an environment conducive to sustainable development encompassing aspects such as society and corporate governance (ESG), SiRUBA underwent a transformative process. In 2021, the Board of Directors sanctioned the “Code of Practice on Corporate Social Responsibility.” By 2022, this was re-branded as the “Code of Practice on Sustainable Development,” serving as SiRUBA’s foundational policy and benchmark for sustainable development. A Sustainable Development Committee was instituted, comprising the General Manager, department-level directors and above, plant supervisors, and the CEO of the SiRUBA Foundations. Their collaborative mission involves crafting corporate strategies and objectives for sustainable development, as well as formulating pertinent management protocols and targeted promotion plans. This committee comprising the General Manager, division-level directors (or equivalent), plant directors, and the CEO of the SiRUBA Foundation, coalesces to define corporate strategies and objectives for sustainable development. It also devises relevant management policies and specific promotional initiatives. The Sustainable Development Committee has also established an expert panel to compile concerns voiced by stakeholders, encompassing topics spanning environmental impact ,job security, supply chain management, labor right, operational performance, and corporate governance. Furthermore, a dedicated stakeholder domain was set up to address sustainable issues and prioritize stakeholder rights.
Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a plan introduced by United Nations in 2015, outline 17 targets for sustainable development encompassing 169 specific details. These principles of sustainability are intended to be adopted by member countries and businesses globally by the year 2030.
SiRUBA has integrated these sustainable development targets into the company’s operational strategy. Our focus will revolve around expanding the finance performance and ensuring legal compliance, raising the enhancing employee treatment to attract top talent, eliminating any inequalities in the workplace, curbing water and greenhouse gas emissions, and engaging suppliers to transform their work environment.
