Message from CEO
Hardly a day goes by without some mention in the media of corporate social responsibility and its growing significance on good business practices. CSR, as it is commonly known, is becoming increasingly important to us all, both as individuals and in our professional lives. Despite much public focus on large multinationals, it is the changing behavior of the privately held business sector that is likely to make the greatest impact on global corporate social responsibility. Privately held businesses have always been the economic engine of the world.
Ravi Autos Sundar believes that a company culture based on core values not only helps our business, but also defines our role in the society.
As an industry Ravi Autos Sundar (Pvt.) Ltd pools about 1.5 Billion in the economy of the country. We are a fast growing employer and are well aware of our responsibilities as a progressive corporate citizen. Employee and community welfare is our prime commitment and a corner stone of the management philosophy. By facilitating employment for the local community and the remote areas, improving the insufficient educational opportunities for unprivileged children, imparting knowledgeable workforce to the system, ensuring compliance with internationally recognized principles and standards concerning human rights and labor, working with our supply chain on eradication of child labor and developing a culture of safety within and out of the organization are some of the programs we are currently engaged in.
