Corporate Social Responsibilities

RAK Ceramics (Bangladesh)’s, approach to social  responsibility is embedded in the Company’s culture and focuses on creating sustainable value for our stakeholders, especially those at the bottom of the economic pyramid. Towards this extent, corporate social responsibility is at the heart of RAK Ceramics’ business values and we recognize that many of our stakeholders, from site neighbors and employees through to our customers and investors, have rising expectations out of our corporate responsibility commitment and performance.

At our Company, we know that our performance can also be measured by the contribution made to the society and hence, social responsibility has become an integral part of our business. This performance is the result of our commitment to continuous improvement in every aspect of our organization. Importantly, we embrace concrete action across all our manufacturing and operating sites, and these actions contribute to sustainable and responsible performance that help us meet our objectives.

While each of our business values has a corporate responsibility context, it is our values of integrity, transparency and commitment, which guides us to maintain the highest ethical standards wherever we operate. We ensure the health and safety of all our people and minimize our impact on the environment through which we bring social responsibility to the fore and into our day-to-day business operations.

 

At our Company, we are engaged in a number of valuable activities that are being undertaken within all of our businesses and across our manufacturing sites. However, we have identified and agreed to the need to do more and do so in a more focused manner, as we strive to ensure the highest CSR impact within the realm of all of our activities.

RAK Ceramics (Bangladesh) actively promotes and engages in the concept of social contribution that helps strengthen communities and contribute to the enrichment of the grassroots of the society, both at the individual level and consolidated as a group. The Company is cognizant of its responsibility towards social welfare and contributed an amount of BDT 4.05 mn as CSR and Donation during the year 2018, encompassing donations to medical treatment, foster education, social and cultural activities of the country.
