For Laird corporate responsibility means many things. It is about providing our customers with the latest innovations in performance and wireless technologies but also about forming strategic partnerships with our suppliers and continuing to deliver value to all our stakeholders.
CSR means enriching our communities through employment and career development opportunities, while growing our business profitably for our shareholders. And it means making the most effective use of our valuable resources like water and electricity while reducing our waste and C02 emissions to respect the local environment.
We have a clear vision: to create a world where smart technology enables virtually everything to sense, think and communicate, transforming our way of life and empowering us to do more than we can imagine.
Our goal is to be a trusted partner delivering technology to the world through innovation, speed and reliable fulfillment. Our values are critical to achieving this. Our customers trust Laird to do the right thing, and expect us to maintain high social, ethical and environmental standards.
Our values provide the framework for how we do business at Laird and they guide us in everything we do – from key business decisions to day-to-day activities. They are integral to our relationships with suppliers, colleagues and other stakeholders. We aim to ensure they differentiate us from our competitors and give us a real commercial advantage.
The values of our colleagues include:
One thing we are very passionate about at Laird is our community involvement and for the past two years we have worked in conjunction with our suppliers to support local communities around the world in improving education. According to UNESCO, one extra year of schooling can increase an individual's earnings by up to 10%, and with this in mind, and Laird's focus on education, we approached some of our suppliers to work together with us to assist various schools in the USA, China and Malaysia. We renovated many of the classrooms, buildings and recreational areas and donated school equipment, sports equipment, furniture and kitchen appliances in order to help improve the schools' educational environment.
Ultimately, we believe if we build a sustainable business which upholds our core values we can fulfill our promise of - SMART TECHNOLOGY. DELIVERED.
