Corporate Social Responsibility

rscBased on our commitment to the community, each one of Softland’s affiliates works with Corporate Social Responsibility programs. Such programs allow combined actions among our company, collaborators, customers, the community and the environment, creating a sustainable environment for growth.

Softland defines Corporate Social Responsibility as “The company’s voluntary integration of social and environmental concerns in its commercial operations and relations with others”. That means Softland’s voluntary integration to create a harmonious environment and fulfill the needs of people/groups that are related to the company on a regular basis.
