Corporate Social Responsibility

 

This year we are proud to report our Corporate Social Responsibility goals in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Beyond business, Roshan Packages continues to invest in Pakistan. First and foremost, we are committed to acting with integrity and honesty in our everyday operations. Honesty and commitment are one of our core values and we aim to embody them in all dealings.

We see CSR as an opportunity to use our expertise to instill hope in society. We aim to make a difference in the lives of individuals, society, the environment and our country. 

Our CSR commitments include:

GOAL 1: No Poverty

Roshan Packages ensures that all employees are paid according to market competitive rates, no employee is paid below the specified minimum wage in Pakistan, and provides short-term and long-term loans to employees. 

GOAL 2: Zero Hunger

According to the FAO, Fresh Fruits and Vegetables account for the highest share of food losses and are usually among the most wasted items. Our fruit boxes were designed specifically to deal with the problem of food losses in the FFV sector. Each fruit box is developed after rigorous research and goes through extensive testing so that farmers and consumers alike do not have to worry about the freshness of the fruits and vegetables they produce and consume. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable sector is the backbone of Pakistan and Roshan Packages is proud to be supporting the industry and providing export quality boxes.

GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being

Roshan Packages Limited is proud to report that we have contributed to Pakistan’s vaccination drive by sponsoring the vaccination of over 200 workers. This drive was organized on top of our Covid-19 prevention methods such as PPE and mask-wearing, further highlighting our commitment to worker and consumer safety. 

GOAL 4: Quality Education

RPL has secured discounts for our workers and employees at prestigious institutions across Pakistan. We have also started conducting mandatory house trainings for all employees which allow them to refine their professional skills. These initiatives reaffirm our commitment to growth- together. 

GOAL 5: Gender Equality

During the pandemic, we were especially cognizant of our female workforce and the dual burden of work and childcare that many women grappled with because of school closings. We supported them by authorizing flexible working hours and work from home whenever possible.  Roshan is not only an equal opportunity employer but rather we have developed a comprehensive policy that promotes gender equality in the workplace. We focus on ensuring equal job training opportunities, career development, and equal remuneration. We also offer special maternity and medical leaves for our female employees and have implemented strict anti-harassment policies and procedures. 

GOAL 6: Clean Water and Sanitation

Water treatment plants have been installed at the plant and are closely monitored for their timely repair and maintenance. Moreover, mineral water supplies are from reputable and certified mineral water suppliers.  Proper sanitation is installed in factory premises. Disposal of sewage water is made with properly covered pipelines. Clean water for other drinking requirements are provided to keep the environment and human hygienic

GOAL 7: Affordable and Clean Energy 

RPL is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and has started exploring renewable energy sources for its operations. We have also installed an economizer on our Boiler for heat recovery and shifted to a submersible pump from a turbine pump, replaced halogen lights with LED Lights to save energy and maintain lux levels, converted VS Motors to induction motors to save energy, and installed steam traps to reduce condensate pump and save exhausted steam at the boiler.

GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Roshan Packages Limited is proud to report that during the pandemic, not only were there zero layoffs but rather we embarked on our largest recruitment drive as of yet. We entered into partnerships with prestigious institutions such as the University of Management and Technology and Superior University to provide students with learning opportunities as well as conducting recruitment drives in different cities across Pakistan. To this day, Roshan has added more than 400 jobs to the Pakistani economy. 

 

GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

Roshan Packages Limited does not compromise on the quality of its infrastructure or machinery and is proud to own one of the most technologically advanced corrugation and flexible packaging plants in the region. Moreover, our state of the art labs in both our labs focus on quality, innovation and research. 

 

GOAL 10: Reduced Inequality

Roshan Packages is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, disability, race, or religion. We employ a diverse workforce and have recently introduced affirmative hiring policies in our Human Resource Department. 

GOAL 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Roshan takes care to ensure that all its sites are a part of regional and development planning leading to sustainable growth in cities and communities. All our factories are located in or around specified industrial zones ensuring that our growth does not hamper that of communities.

GOAL 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

RPL takes care to recycle up to 100% of our eligible paper waste whilst procuring recycled raw materials on priority. Roshan is proud to report that our growth will be clean, green and renewable as we expand towards paper manufacturing and focus on a circular business model.

 GOAL 13: Climate Action

RPL has procured 600 indiginiuos trees to be planted at the Roshan Sun Tao Paper Mills boundary wall. Trees are a great tool to fight climate change as they remove carbon dioxide from the air, store carbon in the soil, and release oxygen into the atmosphere.

GOAL 14: Life Below Water

Roshan Sun Tao Paper Mills (Private) Limited, a dedicated and eco-friendly corrugated paper mill, is not only installing an international standard recycle-based paper manufacturing plant but will also have a European standard effluent water treatment plant for efficient industrial waste management. Our Corrugation plant has also  installed SAP-B1 to monitor and consume raw materials responsibly while effluent is discharged within limits.

GOAL 15: Life on Land

Our focus on recycling and procurement of recycled paper ensures that we do not partake in any deforestation or disruptive activities that may harm the ecosystem.
