Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the voluntary action taken by businesses over and above compliance with minimum legal requirements, to address both its own competitive interests and interests of wider society.

CSR is about how businesses take into account its economical, social and environmental impacts in the way it operates – maximising the benefits whilst minimising the disadvantages.

At Charles Trent we believe that we have responsibilities that go beyond the production of goods and provision of services to help solve important social problems.

We are currently working with all of our business units to ensure best practice solution within our business.

We strongly believe that our Corporate Social Responsibility will not only enable Charles Trent to sustain a strong business, but also establish a superior set of values that will distinguish Charles Trent within the market place.
