Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept that has attracted worldwide attention and acquired significance in the global economy over the years. CSR refers to companies taking responsibility for their actions and the impact on the society at large. It is becoming a business standard now and as there is more awareness about continuing environmental degradation due to industrial activity, the focus has shifted to holding businesses accountable for their long term role in the society and the environment. This has prompted the corporate sector to look into their social responsibility and operate sustainably. Companies are under immense pressure to gain public trust and stay competitive in global economy and are adopting the philanthropic approach of giving back to the society and getting involved in social welfare and developmental activities. Companies are trying to develop business models where they can integrate ethical, social, environmental, employee and consumer concerns along with their business operations involving their stakeholders.
CSR is picking up fast in the Middle East as well. In October 2014, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry signed a memorandum of understanding with the General Secretariat of the Dubai Executive Council, to create a general CSR framework in Dubai which will serve as a reference for companies looking to adopt CSR initiatives.
Cleaning companies in the Middle East are adopting and also developing their own CSR strategies, which would not just contribute to their growth plans but also towards the well being of their employees, customers, stakeholders as well as the society at large. Though faced with a resource crunch, many of the cleaning companies have an active CSR policy.

Recycling & Reducing Carbon Footprint
Throwing things away is a waste of the energy and the resources taken to make the product. Reducing the number of things that need to be thrown away, reduces the amount of materials which have to be quarried and mined.
Reduce, Re-use, Repair and Recycle
We should all avoid products with excessive packaging
- The production of the packaging uses additional energy
- The extra volume and weight will have to be transported (by lorries, aircraft, ships etc.)
- The packaging will be thrown out and will need to be collected from your home by a large waste disposal truck
- Packaging then takes more space at land fill sites
We reuse our coverings , use paper instead of plastic as much as possible and salvage as much material as possible for future use.
Everyone should try and re-use products for as long as feasibly possible. It is amazing how often people buy certain products and use them only once or twice, even though they can be re-used many times. For instance can you think of some items of clothing you have worn only once?
VFix tries and replaces broken parts than complete units thereby reducing the impact on landfills.
Recycling uses less energy and produces less pollution than making things from scratch.
- Making Aluminium cans from old ones uses one twelfth of the energy to make them from raw materials.
- For glass bottles, 315kg of CO2 is saved per tonne of glass recycled after taking into account the transportation and processing
- Making bags from recycled polythene takes one third the Sulphur Dioxide and half the Nitrous Oxide, than making them from scratch.
Another form of recycling is composting household and garden waste.
We ensure that the skips we use break down and recycle components as far as possible. We also try to ensure a reduced non-recycled waste into the landfills by linking waste materials of one industry to raw materials of another industry thereby creating a circular economy.
- it helps fertilize soil, making plants and vegetables grow better
- using home made compost will minimise depletion of peat bogs
- reduces the number of refuse collections needed
- reduces the strain on land fill sites
- you may be able to get a reduced price compost bin via the recycle now website
