We adhere to a high set of ethics and values, which guide our governance procedures and daily management decisions.
Sustainability through performance, relationships and research
In order to have a long term valuable impact on the social context of all its stakeholders and to effectively contribute to the protection of the environment, Emerald recognises that it must be a profitable business operating above and beyond existing ethical and legal standards.
As an organisation, Emerald is committed to expanding its operations globally in a sustainable manner for the benefit of its customers, its employees, and the wider communities and environment on which it impacts. The company takes a proactive approach to its corporate responsibility, which is deeply rooted in its corporate strategy and business decisions at executive level.
