Sustainability and Social Responsibility

Established in 2013, the In-House’s Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability was created to meet current needs without hindering the ability to meet the needs of future generations in terms of economic, environmental and social challenges.
 
Social Responsibility is a framework of measurable corporate policies and procedures and resulting behavior designed to benefit the workplace and, by extension, the individual, the organization and the community in the following areas: Community, diversity and inclusiveness-supply base, diversity and inclusiveness-workforce, environment, ethics, financial responsibility, human rights, health and safety, and sustainability.
