WE ARE COMMITTED
SUSTAINABLE OPERATIONS GLOBALLY
Our mission is to wrap an envelope of high-quality healthcare around clients’ projects; to build local capacity; and to maintain workforce wellbeing. To achieve our mission, we place responsible business practices at the heart of everything we do.
We focus on areas that are aligned with our strategic priorities and our core values. We are committed to going beyond compliance, to address our own competitor interests, while serving the wider community. We focus on areas that will ensure business continuity. ...
We align our efforts with global initiatives that have the ability to make the greatest impact. For example, we support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular:
Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing,
Goal 4: Quality Education,
Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure.
Through our CSR activities, we hope to advance health and save lives. We support health-related initiatives that have the potential to positively impact the communities in which we operate. Both now and in the future.
We are united by our commitment to excellence.
As a healthcare company, we put health and safety at the centre of all that we do. We strive to maintain a safe and healthy place of work, and provide... welfare facilities that are aligned to the countries in which we operate. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our company. With our deep knowledge of complex and demanding operating environments, we provide clients with solutions that are adapted to meet local needs. This means we actively seek culturally diverse teams with the skills and experience to operate where they do.
Every dollar spent in complex and demanding environments, whether intended or not, has far-reaching consequences. When we employ staff from the local ...workforce we become change agents and support social and economic uplift. As a result, we create goodwill that can bring additional benefits for clients, e.g. enhanced security around operations.
As soon as we embark on a new project we ask ourselves how we can support our clients’ wider societal goals, engage with local communities, and leave a lasting impact. This might include building sustainability into the fabric of a medical facility, ensuring we transfer skills to local nationals and build essential medical capability, or looking beyond our projects into the community to see if we can help in some small way.
Iqarus’s approach to local community engagement focuses on leaving a positive legacy in the areas of Health, Education and Infrastructure. Our main delivery methods include staff volunteering, the donation of medical equipment/supplies, and charitable contributions. Where possible, we source promotional materials from the local communities in which we operate.
Iqarus is committed to protecting the environment. We work to prevent pollution, reduce waste and ensure that, wherever practical, measures are implem...ented to protect and preserve natural habitats, flora and fauna. We build environmental and sustainability considerations into our operational plans. This includes ensuring we promote environmental awareness among our suppliers, contractors and partners through the implementation of standard operating procedures. We are taking action to eliminate or reduce, as far as practicable, waste. We also donate used computers, mobile phones, and other technology to charity for refurbishment, reuse or resale.
