Our commitments to the wider community
Be part of our sustainable approach!
There are many ways to be worldly-minded. But whenever it concerns social, ethical, environmental choices or human rights and laws, it is always a matter of taking responsibility and acting with respect. That is exactly what Azelis does – showing respect in everything we do. That makes a difference. And of course, the bigger our efforts, the greater our impact will be.
At Azelis we are committed to maintaining the highest human, environmental and ethical values. That is only possible thanks to the cooperation with local communities, with industry bodies, authorities and/or regulators and with you!
Together we can reduce the environmental impact of our workplace as much as possible. Together we can improve social values in whatever we do, wherever we can.
Responsible Distribution® has become part of our daily work life. They focus on operations and product stewardship which makes it part of corporate responsibility. However, the overall Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme takes it one step further.
CSR concentrates on the complete picture, such as:
- our company values
- ethical behaviour
- human rights
- fair operating practices
Responsible Distribution and CSR together provide a comprehensive framework of all the efforts that Azelis makes throughout the entire supply chain and beyond.
We participate in the United Nations Global Compact initiative and we communicate regularly on our progress on the integration of the Global Compact and its principles into our business strategy, culture and daily operations.
