When it comes to ecology, sustainability is the idea that goods should be produced in ways which replace resources and that do not damage the environment. But the world today looks at sustainability as a part of the broader Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibility:
“A continuing commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the environment and the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large”.
At Lynka, we have recently united our CSR and ecological activities under our Lynka Cares program. In the ordinary course of business, we will strive to operate in ways that enhance society and the environment. The four pillars of our Lynka Cares program are:
Environment. Reduced environmental impact.
Workplace. Improved employee health & safety.
Community. Support the “greater good” via charity & volunteerism.
Marketplace. Legal, ethical & improved business efficiency – CSR must be economically viable
Each year Lynka submits itself to external scrutiny by a professional team of WRAP auditors who spend the better part of a week analyzing our processes, testing our safety protocols, reviewing our records, and even interviewing our employees. It is always an enlightening experience, and we can proudly say that thanks to WRAP, we are a better, safer, more responsible company today.
We are equally proud to be a signatory to the United Nations corporate sustainability program. The UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with over 10,000 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries.
One of Lynka’s most cherished Core Values is Continuous Improvement. In this spirit, we have taken many small steps during the past few years to increase the spread of sustainability across the company. On the following pages, we will highlight a few of the activities Lynka is engaged in under our Lynka Cares program.
