Social responsibility in Entekhab goup

Entekhab Electronic, as a responsible organization towards its stakeholders, has taken great steps in the direction of sustainability, and by strengthening adherence to the principles of social responsibility throughout the organization, it has placed this thinking and vision at the top of its programs: the aim of the activities of this group is not just the creation of wealth; Creating wealth is a prerequisite for creating a wealth distribution system.

For Entekhab Electronic, social responsibility also means having a stable business and ensuring profitability for the beneficiaries. Entekhab Electronic has opened up many profitable opportunities for the stakeholders at the national and international levels, and in this way, it has made the opportunity for economic opening to society without the need for a market for home appliances from importing goods. The purpose of Entekhab Electronic is to achieve the satisfaction of customers, employees, and the local community, as well as to save energy consumption by producing environmentally friendly products.

Entekhab Electronic seeks the development of technology and innovation in the production and manufacture of high-quality products, and in this way, it has achieved its goal by establishing a relationship between the industry and the university.

Social responsibility is a concept that has been at the center of attention in the last few decades and has caused profound changes in the global economy. The concept of social responsibility in the Entekhab Electronic industrial group originated from the following points of view

  1. The ability and capability of governments are not enough to meet all the needs of society at the desired level
  2.  The consequences of the organizations and economic enterprises activities are not limited to them; therefore, companies and various economic and industrial organizations must be committed and responsible towards their society and environment.

changing this attitude into the dominant paradigm of society has led to the formation of economic enterprises’ expectations; Especially those that have wider or more effective functional dimensions

The goal is that such organizations organize their activities in such a way that in addition to legitimate profitability and efforts to maximize the positive effects of their actions, they also reduce possible negative results to a minimum and beyond that as a responsible and effective member of the society, be concerned about the long-term needs and demands of the public and try to reduce the problems of the society.

With this description, it would be said that the social responsibilities of companies are among the essential components of realizing sustainable development; Because accepting the responsibility of companies as the main actors of the economy towards society and the environment, and adding social considerations to the economic decisions of companies, we can hope for a big step towards the realization of the principles of sustainable development and the institutionalization of various aspects of sustainability in society. In this direction, the concept of social responsibility has been one of the fundamental principles of the management system of Entekhab Electronic Industrial Development Group since its establishment until now. At the strategic level, Entekhab Electronic industrial group, with a deep belief in the concept of sustainable development as the main strategy for realizing the sustainable development of the country, taking into account the national interests and the interests of the society in all matters, the key aspects of the policies related to sustainable development are at the top of the strategic programs. With the commitment to these principles, as a responsible and committed organization, Entekhab Electronic Industrial Group fulfills its responsibility towards all stakeholders.

Third level: moral responsibilities; In addition to the first and second level responsibilities, there are a series of social responsibilities related to moral principles; What is important in this field is that Entekhab Electronic industrial group pays special attention to the standards and expectations of the stakeholders, which everyone considers to be fair.
