Company Karma

Company Karma is our CSR version 3.0.

Not only do we care about the UN Global Compact Principles, we have taken this to a new level of holistic thinking, giving ownership and actively encouraging increased involvement and shared leverage with customers, partners and other branches.

For us, Company Karma covers everything from our employees showing social responsibility by volunteering to train the local football team, to our company providing free equipment for a hen farm in Swaziland or reducing energy usage at our plants.

We believe that initiatives need to be embedded in our key business to make it credible. We try, where possible, to create quadruple winning situations where we, together with our companies, customers and partners, engage in a cause which we believe in and find important.

Therefore, Company Karma is our business philosophy of 'doing good' while doing business as a way to create more value for society, but also value for the company itself.

CSR Policy

At SANOVO TECHNOLOGY GROUP, we are aware of our social responsibilities and especially responsibilities to our own stakeholders. These include employees, customers, suppliers and other relevant interested parties.

We are also aware that we must ensure that our impact on the environment is minimal. We have therefore decided to align our company’s social responsibility with the UN Global Compact. This means the company is committed to the ten universally accepted principles of the UN Global Compact which we have divided into three key focus areas: Human, Globe & Economy.

We are part of the overall Company Karma report which is issued by THORNICO.

Company Karma Projects

Donation to International Egg Foundation

Project 2017

Our Karma Project of the year 2017 is a donation of 30,000 USD to the IEF. This donation is based on the sales of GraderPro and other machines this year.

Quote from IEF:

The funds donated to the IEF help create a sustainable food supply and self-sufficiency in our project countries. Supporting egg production to provide high quality protein for vulnerable children, their carers and the local population. Communities also benefit from long term vocational training and educational opportunities to provide true sustainability for the future with local people becoming involved in the production and consumption of their own eggs.

The IEF works with international and local NGOs, agencies and charities to develop tools and best practice guidelines to improve access to information and education. We partner with existing development projects and organisations to help boost natural human immune systems and improve the standard of human nutrition through better access to high quality protein.

Project 2016

SANOVO TECHNOLOGY GROUP have, together with our employees and suppliers, donated a complete boiling and cooling machine to the Project Canaan Egg Farm in Swaziland, South Africa. The machine is specially designed by our engineers in order to accommodate local conditions. The entire operation is supported by solar energy.

Company Karma in THORNICO

We live in a world that becomes increasingly smaller, more transparent and interconnected. Due to globalisation, limitless Internet access and a constant information flow, we act on a global level, blurring national borders and produce and sell worldwide. This is also the case for the THORNICO Group and its companies.
