social responsibility.” ~ Robert McKee
AV Retail approaches corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategically – in order to ensure a sustainable future for society, our customers, and our company. By focusing our talent, culture, and capital on education and environmental performance, we strive to enact positive social change through economic growth, job creation, innovation, and community.
We believe the private sector plays a vital role in creating a level playing field, driving innovation and building an environment that enhances education and entrepreneurship to foster economic growth.
Our social investment strategy is based on our vision to help the world run better and improving people’s lives.
Our approach is driven by following core principles:
- Suppliers : We work for positive social, ethical and environmental improvements in our supply chain.
- Customers : We work to ensure we exceed our client’s expectations through the delivery of excellence in products and service.
- People : We work to provide an environment where our employees are respected and encouraged, treated fairly and cared for, listened to and are motivated to achieve their true potential based on their skill set.
- Environment: We work consciously to reduce the impacts of our business on the environment. We also ensure that all factories meets all standards of audits of labor laws where production is being done.
- Community: We work to deliver value through our charitable donations to charities and community groups as our way of giving back to the community.
In addition to specific national and local programs, AV Retail encourages and supports employee volunteerism year-round. In this regard, we partner with Artisan, Craftsman and several different Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and come together to create positive social change in our communities.
AV Retail also recognises that our senior executives are excellent ambassadors for AV Retail, and we encourage them to lend their management expertise to nonprofit organisations as board members.
