Health and Safety of our stakeholders is one of the significant aspects of Refex Group’s  Environment, Society and Governance (ESG)  initiatives. The Group believes in value creation through the triple bottom line (people, planet and profit) approach and strongly believes that adopting impactful ESG practices is turning out and will continue to be a key differentiator for a sustainable world. The commitment to be ESG compliant will play a key role in the success of our business and our Company will take all necessary steps towards it. As a Group, we are also focusing on bringing about awareness to the health & safety of the general public and are taking steps to give back to our society as it is one of the key areas.

Future-focused, Refex has been steadily resolving to become an ESG-compliant and carbon-neutral company across its businesses. We believe, going forward, two things will determine the success of the businesses – continuous innovation to adapt to the shifting paradigm of value creation and our commitment to be ESG champions. Giving back to society has been a major focus area for us and this is the reason for the current ‘Road Safety Week’ initiative where we are trying to create awareness amongst the general public and to sensitize them about the need to follow all safety rules for the safety and security of the society at large.”
