Paragon Group's Board believes that corporate responsibility provides the critical link between responsible practice and market advantages. We consider the company's short-term and long-term interests when developing strategic, corporate, or business plans, and all our directors are inducted to envision planning horizons of three to five years. Two members of the Paragon Group Board serve as Committee members at ecoDa, Edwin Ward and Dr. Anton Theuma are advisors to ecoDa's Policy Committee and Benchmarking Committee respectively.
Paragon Group aims to make a positive contribution to society and the environment. We work hard to reduce our impact on the environment, to manage any ethical issues associated with our work, to support and engage our people and to help good causes through our pro bono work.
Sustainability is also a growing business opportunity. Hence we are Board members of BASE EU and working hard to bring cities, regions and companies together to improve sustainability. Our companies help clients to understand sustainability, embed green and ethical values in their brands and communicate their progress.
Behaving responsibly helps us achieve our business goals and enhances our reputation with clients, our people, regulators and investors. That's why we want Paragon Group and its companies to be known for environmental, ethical and social leadership within the international community.
