For Future Pipe Industries CSR is about making a difference and being accountable for the impact of our operations on the environment and the wider community. We are committed to CSR and sustainable development to ensure a better quality of life for everyone now and for generations to come. We embrace the principles of CSR as laid down in the United Nations Global Compact. These principles are reflected in our strategy and the mechanisms and practices enabling us to achieve it.
We have a defined CSR structure and clear roles and responsibilities and CSR is guided and directed through our CSR Committee. However, CSR is the responsibility of each and every employee at FPI and we encourage, support and recognise contributions to it.
We are realistic. We understand that we must make improvements gradually and continually whilst sustaining and growing our business and working within our sphere of influence. We achieve this by setting and reviewing long, medium and short-term goals and maintaining control of our operations.
We focus on 4 key areas,
Stakeholder and CommunityBuilding strong relationships for the good of the business, our customers, partners, employees and the wider community is part of the way we do business. We have identified our stakeholder groups and engage with each of them in ways which help build mutual understanding and benefit.
People & CultureWe believe in people and put them first in all we do. It is only through the actions of people that we will realise our 3 other CSR goals. We will build the relationships and culture needed to enable people to be productive, satisfied and dedicated corporate citizens.
EnvironmentalThe nature of our business means that we need to understand and carefully manage our impact on the environment. Operating effectively will help us to do this. We also have a major responsibility and opportunity to convert the world’s pipe systems to the longer term, more environmentally, friendly fiberglass pipe.
EconomicWe conduct and grow our business ethically and build value by operating and growing responsibility guided by our policies, procedures and governance. We hold ourselves accountable for the impact of our operations and have appropriate policies and control to manage them to ensure our growth is positive and enhancing to the industry we work in and the world around us.
Above all, FPI looks to take the right action for all stakeholders while delivering our Corporate Purpose – to deliver water and energy to the world in the most efficient and sustainable way.
