RSI Corporate Social Responsibility

Do what we can. Do it with heart. Aim for impact. Keep assessing the journey.

As a small corporation, Risk Sciences International (RSI) cannot do as much as it would like to, which is no excuse for doing nothing. Quite the contrary, it is incumbent upon all, including those with fewer means, to be the best corporate citizens.

Internally, RSI strives to adopt the most socially and environmentally sound practices. We do so by referring to a guiding framework for our decision-making as follows.

Protecting the environment

RSI recognizes the need to protect the natural environment. Keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to all. We strive to always follow best practices when disposing garbage and using chemical substances. We strictly adhere to all Provincial and Federal directives related to the environment.

Apart from legal obligations, our company seeks to proactively protect the environment through:

  • Recycling
  • Conserving energy
  • Using environmentally-friendly technologies
  • Encouraging the use of public transport

Protecting people

RSI is dependent on its staff's good health and overall well being. To that end, we:

  • Do not risk the health and safety of our employees and community.
  • Support diversity and inclusion.

Learning

RSI actively invests in staff training and in R&D that can improve the work that we deliver. We are open to suggestions and listen carefully to ideas. RSI will try to continuously improve the way it operates.

RSI is committed to the United Nations Global Compact. We readily act to promote our identity as a socially aware and responsible business. Management strives to communicate this policy on all levels. Managers are also responsible for resolving any CSR issues.

Human rights

Our company is dedicated to protecting human rights. We are a committed equal opportunity employer and consider abiding by all fair labor practices as core to our mission.

Staff initiatives

Beyond volunteering, RSI encourages its staff to engage in socially responsible activities that benefit community and planet. As part of our commitment to this practice, RSI highlights initiatives that its staff initiate or participate in.
