Corporate Social Responsibility refers to the areas of social responsibility focused on by the company and its employees. The CSR policy guides us in everything our company stands for and signifies that we conduct our operations responsibly.
As part of our CSR-related efforts, Sjorring Maskinfabrik has two particular areas of focus: HR policy and environmental management. Both are essential key points that must be further developed and adapted continuously.
We develop our CSR policy on an ongoing basis and we aim to take a practice-oriented approach to its implementation and to living up to our corporate social responsibility.
