Corporate Social Responsibility

The social purpose of BTC is to achieve sustainable human development, and doing so, BTC also wants to take on its responsibility at the social and environmental level. To that end, BTC develops a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy.

Besides its basic bilateral cooperation assignment, BTC wants to be a pioneer in this field and act as a role model for its partners.

BTC innovates and increases its expertise by systematically developing the different elements of its CSR policy. In concrete terms, this relates to drawing up an ethical code, developing internal AIDS and gender policies, and obtaining and keeping environmental labels.

On 4 March 2009 the Management Committee approved the Corporate Social Responsibility policy paper. The strategy and the coordination of the CSR processes are entrusted to the experts concerned of the different departments. The General Manager sponsors the environmental policy, the Finances Director sponsors integrity; the Human Resources Director sponsors gender and AIDS.
