For our People
Our respect for our employees are clear and unwavering. We meet the highest ethical standards in all our companies. We believe that although government has the primary duty to protect and ensure fulfilment of human rights, we have a responsibility to respect human rights and can play positive roles in the communities where we operate. So, we strive to operate safety, protect our workers and deal ethically with our stockholders, partners and the public. Some of our ‘best practices’ for corporate governance are: protecting the human rights, managing diversity, managing equal employment opportunity, antidiscriminatory actions, workforce health and safety. To further clarify our commitment in this area, we adopted the latest ‘Bangladesh Labour Act 2013 amendment’, alongside with other international requirements and standards.
For our Community
We contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of people in our country where we operate because we recognise the deep interdependence of healthy businesses and healthy societies. Wherever we are, we focus to be a good neighbour, sharing the concerns of our communities and dedicating our capabilities, resources and people to creating a better future.
To spread the light of education, we have established primary and secondary schools, colleges, islamic madrasa and orphanage, as well as regularly patronising fund to many institutes across the country. We established Sultanpur Hanif Bhuiyan School & College in 1975, Mujaddedia Barakatia Dhakil Madrasa in 1998. Furthermore, to provide more intense community support we have formed a trust named ‘Alhaz Mohammad Hanif Bhuiyan Trust Fund 2002’. This fund currently holds BDT 1 million and regularly provides scholarships to those students who stand first in class.
Our future plan to continue our deeply rooted philanthropic interest is to establish a technical training institute in 2015 and a 100 bed nonprofit hospital in 2017.
For our Environment
We in Abedin Group believe that a clean, safe and healthy environment can go hand in hand with meeting our business philosophy. We are continually evaluating and striving to improve our processes to reduce pollution and waste, conserve natural resources, and minimising potential nega- tive environmental impacts of our activities and operations. From our everyday actions in our offices and factories, we are dedicated to make the right decisions for the environment. We use our Operational Excel- lence Management system to identify and manage risks and to improve reliability and safety in all our operations.
