Corporate Social Responsibility

We take our responsibility to stakeholders and Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously.

Introduction

Firecrest Construction Ltd takes its responsibility to stakeholders and the value of Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) very seriously.

“Corporate social responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.”

  • We recognise that we must integrate our business values and operations with our social and environmental responsibilities to meet the expectations of our stakeholders. They include customers, employees, investors, suppliers, the community and the environment. We aim to demonstrate these responsibilities through our actions and within our corporate policies.
  • We take seriously all feedback that we receive from our stakeholders and, where possible, maintain open dialogue to ensure that we fulfil the requirements outlined within this policy.
  • We shall be open and honest in communicating our strategies, targets, performance and governance to our stakeholders in our continual commitment to sustainable development.
