Corporate Social Responsibility
Our approach to sustainability includes supporting the sustainable and positive development of the society in which we work and live. “Invest in people”, part of our Corporate Philosophy, is the theme that underlines our commitment to social responsibility. Our social responsibility efforts focus on education, through the "Start from the Heart" internal campaign. To offer education is to make a long-term investment in people and, ultimately, in communities. With a presence in many countries all over the world, our Groups are uniquely positioned to understand the challenges and needs of their local communities and are encouraged to initiate and support local projects. By supporting educational programmes, we enable people to support themselves.
To recognise all the great initiatives that take place locally, a Lapwing Award is given to the best projects each year. This award encourages and acknowledges all the great work that is being done throughout SHV with respect to "Start from the Heart" activities.
