A transparent policy
ACS has created a CSR report for our customers and suppliers. This is updated annually and details our core values. This report states how we pursue our social policy and how it is integrated within our company. ACS has also appointed a CSR working group, which annually introduces new guiding elements which can also be found in our CSR report.
Our CSR policy and report is based on the 10 principles covered by the UN Global Compact, to stay aligned with these principles, we yearly submit a Communication on Progress to the UN.
