SNAP subscribes to the definition of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development that:
"Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the community and society at large."
SNAP's corporate social responsibility (CSR) program stands on four pillars:
To foster mutual understanding, trust and support, SNAP builds strong and meaningful stakeholder engagement and partnerships, and is committed to making a positive change in the communities where it operates.
SNAP goes beyond compliance in meeting environmental standards, and pursues projects that help provide solutions to environmental issues towards conservation and efficient use of natural resources, specifically watershed management.
SNAP upholds human rights, including rights of indigenous peoples, which are the basic rights and freedoms and are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect, and independence. It also provides employees with a workplace that is free from recognized hazards that cause or are likely to cause serious physical injury or death, and maintain working conditions that are safe and healthy for employees.
SNAP implements rules and programs to ensure accountability, fairness, ethical practices, and transparency in its relationship with lenders, customers, suppliers, vendors.
