Economy, Environment, Society
As a natural resource company, we must measure our performance by more than the traditional bottom line. 在新沙巴体育网, we judge success by the triple bottom line of economic, 环境, 和社会表现.
This philosophy acknowledges that profit is a valid pursuit which, 事实上, motivates people to create value with the most efficient use of finite resources. Unprofitable companies cannot pay taxes or wages, cannot support local businesses or local communities. A business that cannot succeed financially has no other business.
At the same time, companies do have responsibilities beyond pure profit. Every company impacts the environment, 和 every company impacts the lives of people in 和 around it. 在新沙巴体育网, we believe that an organization embracing the triple bottom line can, 而且应该, be rewarded with the best economic bottom line.
是的, we dig materials out of the ground, we use energy to process them, 和 we distribute the finished products over rail 和 roads. These activities have an impact, as does every human activity. 在新沙巴体育网, we believe firmly that our impacts, weighed fairly against the benefits of what we produce, 明显是积极的. This is by design: in the makeup of our plant 和 in the way our products are among the most durable, 灵活的, 和 widely-used building materials in the world.
We acknowledge our impact on the world around us, 和 we recognize that our ability to operate successfully is inherently connected to our performance as responsible corporate citizens.
