SHV is strongly involved in the development of many aspects of its immediate environment. A sustainable and positive development of the society in which we work and live is also to our own benefit. “Invest in people” is part of the Corporate Philosophy and the theme that underlines SHV’s commitment to social responsibility.
SHV’s focuses its social responsibility efforts on education, through the internal campaign ‘Start from the Heart.’ Offering education is making a long-term investment in people and ultimately in communities. SHV's Groups are uniquely positioned to understand the challenges and needs of the local communities and are therefore encouraged to initiate local projects and support existing ones. By supporting educational programmes, SHV helps people to help themselves.
