Corporate Social Responsibility is strongly connected with the principles of Sustainability. CSR is the recognition on the part of management of an obligation to the society. It serves not only for maximum economic performance, but also for humane and constructive social policies as well. The concept involves two phases. On the one hand, it means not doing things that create problems for the society. On the other, it may be expressed as the voluntary assumption of the obligation to help solve social problems.
Therefore, it is the core corporate responsibility of SBL Specialty Coatings Private Limited (hereinafter referred to as ‘Company’) to practice its corporate values through its commitment to grow in a socially and environmentally responsible way, while meeting the interests of its stakeholders.
