At Sheikh Cement we constantly strive to raise our standards of sustainability by adopting policies that clearly define our business approach. We have robust policies on Safety, Environment and CSR. There are a few new additions to the list of policies, which include, Sustainability Policy, Energy & Carbon Policy, Water Stewardship Policy, Biodiversity Policy, Supply chain & Procurement and Human Rights. The launch of these policies is a reaffirmation of our commitment to further accelerate our sustainability journey in these critical areas.
The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an excellent vehicle for driving our sustainability vision. We have therefore aligned our sustainability strategy to the SDGs.
The SDGs address issues critical for the survival of the planet and society such as climate change, poverty, gender equality, clean water and sustainable energy, responsible consumption, biodiversity, health & well-being, etc.
They serve as a guide in our efforts to leave a healthier planet for our future generations, in partnership with our employees, customers, suppliers, government, and society. By aligning our business strategy with the SDGs, we are able to anticipate stakeholder expectations, identify future business opportunities, and future-proof our business. The UN SDGs along with our sustainability framework enables us to create meaningful and measurable progress on issues relevant to our stakeholders.
