I – PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Through the Green Latitude initiative, IWTG seeks to embrace the principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR).
We understand that to demonstrate our value as an organization, we must employ the triple economic, social, and environmental dimensions.
It is our goal to be a modern, highly productive, and fully human company. We want to achieve sustainability through a philosophy based on transparency, respect, trust, and care.
We seek to accomplish our business goals:
– without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs;
– because it is in IWTG’s long-term interest;
– integrating CSR as the linchpin of our organization’s business model and strategy.
At the same time, we understand that we will achieve this development only if:
1. we are profitable;
2. we keep the men and women who work in a company top of mind;
3. we make safeguarding the environment one of our key priorities.
IWTG helps its clients achieve green and sustainability goals by addressing principal milestones in the journey:
1. reducing energy consumption through efficient enterprise asset administration;
2. lowering a company’s ecological footprint through adequate supply-chain management; and
3. managing product life cycle to reduce waste.
Achieving sustainability and gaining returns on investments are not mutually exclusive. At IWTG, we help clients step up to the plate in both areas. Since an organization’s employees have the most sway in the successful implementation of environmental policies, it is imperative to garner their commitment through company training and awareness campaigns and by incentivizing and rewarding compliance.
II – OUR OBJECTIVES
We wish to stand out by:
– serving the community through our work ethic and our investigation and experimentation methodologies;
– quickly detecting and responding to needs wherever they may arise;
– being bold in undertaking new investment risks;
– creating stable sources of employment;
– generating wealth and distributing it; and
– caring for the environment.
To this end, we grouped our objectives into six categories:
1 – External (market) economic objectives
By providing high-quality service and generating high total value added, companies contribute to the betterment of society.
2 – Internal (workplace) economic objectives
By the just and equitable distribution of total value added, all employees may obtain what is necessary for their well-being and personal progress.
3 – External (community) social objectives
To contribute to the progress and empowerment of the community, organizations must not fail to account for the potential impacts their operations might have on their physical surroundings.
4 – Internal (workplace) social objectives
For the growth and empowerment of a company’s members—that is, their well-being—those same members must recognize that the community they serve is not merely a structure that permits a select few to satisfy their interests but a network that allows all those involved to benefit.
5 – External environmental objectives and policies
As much as possible, considering immediate surroundings and the world at large, companies must avoid damaging the environment.
6 – Internal environmental objectives and policies
We seek to maximize the efficient use of production inputs (i.e., raw materials, energy, and water). Likewise, to preserve the setting in which a company operates, we include in these objectives compliance with pollution-control laws, such as recycling regulations.
