Social Commitments – CSR

Employees

ICONS International people are critical to its success. The Group motivates its employees and promotes involvement by making the most of diversity, supporting professional development, and ensuring safe, healthy working conditions.

Diversity

Diversity underpins our history, culture and identity. That’s why the first commitment in Our Principles of Responsibility states that: ” ICONS International employees can all express their cultural diversity and are managed without discrimination”. We know that employees who feel respected are more motivated and effective. For this reason, we’ve taken measures to promote gender equality in the workplace, age diversity, jobs for the disabled and minority hiring. We take action at three levels: recruitment, job opportunities and career development. Our goal is to make diversity a strength, an advantage and a lever for developing creativity and competitiveness.

Health / Safety

In designing our policies, ICONS International adopted the World Health Organization’s definition of health: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. For ICONS International, health is a challenge shared by all of its team members and partners. The Group also considers that insurance coverage is a crucial lever for maintaining a high level of good health. It believes in deploying local approaches to achieve its goal of being the health benchmark in all host countries.

Wholesale suppliers

Sustainable development holds companies up to stakeholders’ expectations. As a Global Compact signatory, ICONS International takes sustainable development issues into account when selecting suppliers.

The Group encourages suppliers and their subcontractors to join the Global Compact themselves. By asking suppliers to meet its direct requirements and make a public commitment, the Group exposes them to the principles of sustainable development.

This approach also reflects ICONS International’s commitment to promoting human rights, in accordance with Global Compact Principle 1 (Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights) and Principle 2 (Businesses should make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses).

Corporate Social Responsibility

At ICONS INTERNATIONAL, the specialists in emerging markets and innovation, our goal of CSR is to embrace responsibility for the company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere. Furthermore, we proactively promote the public interest by encouraging community growth and development. We voluntarily eliminate practices that harm the public sphere, regardless of legality. For ICONS International CSR is the deliberate inclusion of public interest into corporate decision-making, and the honoring of a triple bottom line (TBL): people, planet, profit. Our organization is driven by ethical and moral principles in all our business environment.

Dedicated to Youth

At ICONS INTERNATIONAL, the specialists in emerging markets and innovation, we are very close to community’s events and youth. We take to heart and treasure young boys and girls initiatives in a very delicate phase of their lives by supporting and promoting youth and school activities.

In this great venture, we are but just a drop in the ocean! It is for this reason that we greatly appreciate your consideration for helping us in this very important Social Mission.

We thank you for taking your time in further reading about the projects that we promote and are grateful for any financial support and contributions that you will devote to our young friends and students projects .

 

World Challenge

Ras Al Khaimah English Speaking School (RAKESS) have organized a mission for students in which a group of ten students are preparing to take part. It consists of a 4-week educational expedition to Tanzania which will involve a challenging 4 days trek to Mt Meru and working with the local community to help repair and redecorate a large school.

I’m a 15 years old student at RAKESS participating to this event and writing on our teams behalf. We would greatly appreciate your consideration, interest and financial support for our students team project.

I attached a brief presentation of the world challenge mission and the letter Mr Clarke (our Geography teacher) has drafted to endorse the mission.

As shown in the presentation, one of the tasks we have to achieve in order to complete the school mission is “fund collection”. Our group of 10 people have to raise 150.000 Dhs (about US $ 42,000) for the whole group (15.000 Dhs – about US $ 4,200 each).

You could be of great help for us and we would really appreciate your support to collect the  funds required for the school mission. ICONS International has kindly set-up a “World  Challenge Account” for us making it easy for you to donate.
