With the ongoing refugee and garbage crises, the drastic increase in violence, insecurity and violation of human rights, HOLDAL’s focus for the coming year is on implementing all three CSR pillars effectively with women and children as our main target.
HOLDAL CSR & SDG roadmaps have made significant progress in 2018 despite the challenges our region has been facing. Holdal joined the United Nations Global Compact and Global Compact Lebanon in January 2018 in supporting the 10 principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.
In reality however, these principles have been an intrinsic part of our Group from its very beginnings 70 years ago. HOLDAL is committed to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of our company, and to engaging in collaborative projects, which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals. This gives us an opportunity to enhance our process, roadmap, reporting & measurement tools. It also allows us to partner with the private and public sector to share best practices and add more value to our community.
We have selected 5 SDGs: 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing), 4 (Education), 5 (Gender Equality), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) which became an integral part of HOLDAL Vision, Mission, Strategy & Values.
These are everyone’s responsibility to ensure business growth, sustainability & impact.
To ensure our strategic plans and progress report are properly handled, we have set-up an agile team behind each SDG with specific leaders who will be reporting on progress on an annual basis to the CEO. Each SDG leader has set a clear roadmap including SMART goals, actions and timelines in collaboration with their respective task force.
