CENTURY METAL RECYCLING LIMITED

1. PHILOSOPHY

Recognizing that business enterprises are economic organs of society and draw on societal resources, it is CMR’s belief that a company’s performance must be measured by its Triple Bottom Line contribution to building economic, social and environmental capital towards enhancing societal sustainability. CMR believes that in the strategic context of business, enterprises possess, beyond mere financial resources, the transformational capacity to create game-changing development models by unleashing their power of entrepreneurial vitality, innovation and creativity. In line with this belief, CMR will continue crafting unique models to generate livelihoods and environmental capital. Such Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) projects are far more replicable, scalable and sustainable, with a significant multiplier impact on sustainable livelihood creation and environmental replenishment. These initiatives are independent of the normal conduct of CMR’s business. Programmes, projects and activities (collectively “CSR Programmes”) carried out in this regard are the subject matter of this Policy.
