● Ensure that all stakeholders are aware of the company’s Social Responsibility policy;
● Promote the understanding of the company’s actual commitments among all stakeholders based on the requirements of the SA8000 Standard;
● Highlight the company’s commitment to ensuring the continuous improvement of the Social Responsibility Management System, taking into account feedback, suggestions, considerations, and input from all internal and external stakeholders.
