We strive to be a company that society wants to exist. As part of our global effort to embody this ideal, we have developed an approach to conducting business that seeks to uphold the following principles of corporate responsibility.
Industries need to better understand how to respond to environmental.
A large and growing number of manufacturers are realizing substantial financial and environmental benefits from sustainable business practices. Sustainable manufacturing is the creation of manufactured products through economically-sound processes that minimize negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources. Sustainable manufacturing also enhances employee, community and product safety.
Respect for the Individual
Our relationships with associates (employees), customers and business partners are guided by the company’s philosophy of “Respect for the Individual.” As envisioned by our company’s founders, this philosophy leads us to value and respect the unique contributions of each individual.
Portways seeks to create an environment in which each associate’s ambitions and abilities can be developed, as well as a workplace where an individual’s potential can be actively realized. Accordingly, we are committed to ensuring that each person involved in the development, production, distribution, sale and service of our products is treated with dignity and respect, and has a meaningful opportunity to contribute to the company’s success.
The respect for human rights is an extension of our philosophy of “Respect for the Individual,” which centers on initiative, equality and trust. As part of our effort to conduct business in an ethical manner, we will not engage in business practices or activities that compromise fundamental human rights.
Business Ethics and Compliance
Trust is a critical foundation of a successful and sustainable business. We have worked diligently throughout the history of our group companies to foster trusting relationships among Portways and its customers, suppliers, business partners and employees/contractors. To maintain a high degree of trust with all stakeholders, it is therefore a core responsibility of all associates to conduct business in an open, honest and ethical manner, and to follow the company’s code of ethics in all their business practices. This includes upholding all laws in the places where we do business.
We all share the same planet, so we’re working hard to lessen our impact on the environment through best practice and innovation.
We’re working to reduce the carbon footprint created by our offices through initiatives such as:
- Centralized printing
- LED and censored lighting
- Paperless office practices
- Car sharing
- Maximizing natural light
- Limiting unnecessary employee travel
Inclusion & Diversity
At Portways, we honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals regardless of race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender identity or expression, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, pregnancy, disability, military status, genetic information, marital status or any other status protected by law.
Through a broad range of community initiatives, charitable giving, foundation grants, and volunteerism, Portways seeks to create value for society and bring joy to people’s lives. We strive to support a number of programs aimed at advancing education and creating experiences for young people from underserved communities to achieve their dreams. We are proud of the many partnerships we have established with non-profit organizations that share our value of community involvement.
Commitment to Principles
In adhering to the above principles, Portways seeks to communicate its commitment to its customers, associates, suppliers, employees, other business partners, and to the communities in which we live and work. Further, we expect that any party conducting business with Portways will embrace and uphold these principles to the best of their ability.
