A goal we have set ourselves at the Transworld Group where we have taken a pledge that we will work towards being a carbon-neutral organization by 2043. To reach that aim, over the next few years, we will start with focusing on reducing our greenhouse gas emissions across all businesses and locations. Additionally, we are committed to strengthening data security and building a more diverse and inclusive workspace. But we plan to meet these goals in a more measurable manner.
Besides United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), we are also following the United Nations Global Compact initiative and we have applied for certification from CDP, a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for companies, investors and cities, etc.
It is a continuous learning curve as ESG is always a work in progress and value creation has always been an integral part of the Transworld Group DNA. We believe that businesses can thrive only if the society and environment prosper alongside. And as far as Transworld is concerned, social responsibility and connecting with people have always been the philosophy of our organisation where our main aim is to create and deliver prosperity to our employees and to every stakeholder associated with our group. This is how we have been able to maintain and nurture all our relationships over the years.
