Our Social Responsibility
Sudatel’s concept of social responsibility is based upon a true Islamic vision: an integrated system for social rights defined by Islam for all people in wealth and money. In Islam, solidarity, which is a main pillar within this framework, extends beyond materialistic aspects to include the spiritual ones wherein Sudatel has learnt from the good mankind experiences and the fruits of the international criteria defined by specialized humanitarian institutions in line with its values and ethical criteria. Sudatel affirms its resolute adherence to the ethical principles and reliable work practices in all its dealings and transactions. Sudatel has considerably contributed in realizing sustainable development, improved the living standards of its workers and their families as well as local communities and the society as a whole, and preserved the environment and has taken full commitment of communal service as a strategic option.
