GLASSHOUSE CARES

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

 

Glasshouse feels strongly about our environmental impact. Through an effective blend of environmental protection, respect for people and cultures as well as dedication to saving energy and natural resources, we are able to develop meaningful sustainability.

 

CARING FOR OUR OWN

 

 

 

 

 In line with this, Glasshouse has supported the following CSI projects:

 

Corporate governance

 Adept at corporate governance, Glasshouse operates in complete transparency, encouraging employees to be involved in the company’s affairs and to obtain a sound understanding of its activities.  Empowerment is encouraged through participation and information sharing. All aspects of our policies are non-discriminatory as regards to race, colour and creed.
