Investing in our community
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reflects a business’s accountability and commitment to contributing to the well-being of communities and society through various environmental and social measures. We, at MeDirect, pay great attention to CSR, participating in environmental sustainability initiatives, community give-back programmes, ethical practices and volunteering in the community. After all, the result of hard work should not only reflect successful projects and profitable operations, but also a prosperous and harmonious society.
