Environmental and Social Sustainability Report

'PEOPLE, PLANET, PROFIT'

Environmental and social sustainability mission statement

ACLEDA MFI Myanmar Co., Ltd. is committed to achieving strong, sustainable financial returns while respecting the environment and community within which we live. We subscribe to the concept of triple bottom line ('people, planet, profit') reporting and are developing indicators for measuring and reporting on our performance and impacts on the society and the environment and to implement a reporting structure based on the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative.

The key elements of ACLEDA MFI Myanmar Co., Ltd.'s ESS mission are:

  1. To provide a framework of guidelines within which ACLEDA MFI Myanmar Co., Ltd. can operate in a sustainable manner so that our impact on the environment, society and the community in which we operate is managed in a responsible way.
  2. To continue to introduce energy efficient systems into our buildings and to manage sensibly our energy requirements wherever we operate.
  3. To honor the society in which we live and actively work to promote an inclusive culture, embracing not just shareholders and staff, customers, and business partners but respect for the individual within our community.
  4. To recognize that supporting the community is not just morally sound but good business as well - our 'good health' and prosperity are mutually interdependent.

Environment

ACLEDA MFI Myanmar Co., Ltd. fully subscribes to international conventions which prohibit the provision of credit to, or otherwise support any activities which might harm the environment, be morally repugnant or jeopardize human rights. In particular the MFI has in place policies which forbid involvement in exploitative forms of forced or child labor, trade in weapons and munitions, gambling, casinos, brothels, regulated wildlife or wildlife products and production or trade in radioactive materials or significant volumes of hazardous chemicals.

Social Sustainability

ACLEDA MFI Myanmar Co., Ltd.'s corporate culture is built on respect for the society in which we operate and an inclusive approach to our stakeholders embracing not just shareholders and staff, customers and business partners but the community at large. In addition to the environmental programs mentioned above, the MFI observes a policy of equality in all our dealings with the public in general and customers and staff alike. Above all, ACLEDA MFI Myanmar Co., Ltd. has practiced from the very beginning 'zero tolerance' of corruption both internally and externally and transgressions are dealt with summarily.

The following are key principles in ACLEDA MFI Myanmar Co., Ltd.'s corporate social responsibility policy:

Staff
