Corporate sustainability is simply approaching our business aims responsibly with an awareness of our surrounding environmental needs to fulfil stakeholder demands, achieve profit, and remain competitive. Corporate responsibility in short, is taking a fresh approach to our objectives in Vodafone Ghana to reduce the environmental impact on business and to meet the needs of our stakeholders, whilst maintaining a successful financial bottom line. At Vodafone Ghana, we believe that by practicing greater responsibility we would have a positive impact on the wider society.
Practical Actions Towards Reaching Our Goals:
We will reduce our carbon emissions and ensure compliance with all environmental requirements. We will do this by collaborating with all units to cut down on energy use in offices; turning air conditioners off when out of office; ride staff bus instead of driving to work; use conference calling instead of traveling physically to attend meetings.
We will engage our stakeholders who are most affected by and in turn affect our operations. This we will do by holding face to face discussion sessions, interviews, and stakeholder forums twice every year. We will also give feedback to our stakeholders on issues raised.
We will uphold the highest ethical standards in all our business practices: responsible network deployment; responsible marketing; legal compliance staff and stakeholder engagement.
Access to communications
We will strive to make it possible for everyone within our market to have access to communications through the V School booth project, as well as lower tariffs for the disabled and elderly.
