Successful people have a social responsibility to make the world a better place and not just take from it. “CSR isn’t a particular program, it’s what we do every day, maximizing positive impact and minimizing negative impact.”

Alhamd Traders strives to be a company that meets the expectations of the world business community to grow and develop responsibly, and a company that significantly contributes to a healthier global society. As said by Henry David:

“Goodness is the only investment that never fails”

We are determined to fulfill social responsibilities, such as environment conservation and improvements of safety and quality, for the realization of sustainable society.

We have been making efforts to foster a safety culture based on the idea that safety is the most important element. We not only observe related laws and regulations but also continuously improve “environment conservation,” “operational safety”, “workplace safety and hygiene,” “distribution safety,” “product safety and quality assurance.

While striving to be an enterprise that makes useful products for society, Alhamd Traders has for many years been carrying out Responsible Care activities, which began as voluntary initiatives to manage waste substances. By way of these activities, we have made progress in developing our environmental management, significantly reducing energy consumption and even setting up a business to recycle materials used in different metal industry. Through these actions, we hope to be able to help realize a sustainable future for everyone.

We are aiming at becoming a company that is continuously trusted by society because of the efforts we make in our business activities to preserve the global environment. “Creating a strong business and building a better world are not conflicting goals – they are both essential ingredients for long-term success”

Sustainability:

In Alhamd Traders, we believe that Sustainability is just another aspect of good business practice. As being a responsible company we strive to meet the needs of the world today without jeopardizing the needs of the world tomorrow.

Our Responsibilities

Environmental Responsibility:

It is one of our fundamental responsibilities to protect environment and prevent earth and air pollution. For this reason, Alhamd Metalux has been proactive on environmental management since the day it started its operations. Our cutting edge chemistry and advanced mechanical technology enable us to preserve the natural beauty of our atmosphere with minimal inputs and ever reducing impact on the environment. We are industry leader in the development of process that put care for the environment alongside the quality of our recycled products.

 

Economic Responsibility:

As a financially sound company, Alhamd Traders endeavors to balance the need for sustained capital return with wider stakeholder benefits. Through proprietary risk assessment tools and the Alhamd Traders Operational Risk Assessment, we screen every potential project for unacceptable social or environmental aspects so we only become involved in acceptable projects. A second way in which we exercise our economic discretion, for the good of social and environmental considerations, is through our supply chain. As the value of purchases of materials and products increases from non-traditional sources in Pakistan, social and environmental auditing of prospective first line suppliers allows us to influence their performance and aspirations.

 

Social Responsibility:

Alhamd Traders takes its Social Responsibility very seriously. We are committed to operate in accordance with the highest standards in terms of labour practices, human rights, impacts on society and product responsibility. We strictly ensure the safety of our personal as well as sub-contractors, suppliers, visitors and general public at and around the yard premises. Within this broad Social Agenda, a number of specific areas are particularly important to us. Our commitment to other parts of the Social Agenda is set out in our Code of Conduct.

 

Safety & Occupational Health:

Recycling is a high risk activity. Therefore, our single most important Social Responsibility is to ensure that everyone who works for Alhamd Traders returns home to their loved ones in the same condition as when they left for work. To this end, we have put in place a Safety Strategy, Guidelines and Standards that are applicable throughout the world. Alhamd Traders aims to keep its core values by conducting weekly tool box talk and monthly health & safety training sessions. This is to make our yards a zero injury workplace.
