For Softtek, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a process of value creation in which Softtek continually strives for an optimum balance between people, planet and profit. This means that not only the impact on profit counts in all our business decisions, but that the consequences for people inside and outside the company and the environment also play a serious role. The involvement and interests of employees, community, customers, suppliers, non-governmental organizations and all of our stakeholders is highly valued.
Our principles are included in, among others, the ISO 26000 guidance and the ILO (International LaborOrganization) standards. Knowledge sharing and collaboration among companies and with social organizations and other stakeholders, is of great importance for CSR in order to make further progress.
For Softtek CSR is always evolving.
