RMA Corporate Citizenship
Integrity at the Company Level
Corporate citizenship is an important concern at RMA Cambodia. The Company embraces a commitment of responsibility to employees and the people with whom we work – and to the values that shape their ways of life. An essential aspect of RMA’s culture is caring for the communities in which we operate.
RMA helps create social and economic opportunity wherever it conducts business. We are mindful of how we manage our social footprint and the positive contribution it can make in people’s lives, and on the communities of which we are a member.
As a worldwide employer, RMA supports the rights of individuals and cares for them as neighbors. We subscribe to the concept of equal opportunity, to creating a positive work environment, and offering people the kind of training that will help them realize their full potential.
United Nations Global Compact
The Compact aligns business operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. RMA supports this compact and ensures that its own actions support and embrace the protections of internationally accepted human rights and rejects rights abuses. RMA supports the elimination of discrimination in the workplace and the abolition of child labor. Read more about the UN Global Compact and its principles
Partner with AIESEC: Fostering Cambodian Youth
In a project that features overseas volunteer work to foster cross-cultural appreciation and socio-economic understanding through community development, Cambodia youth can gain self-improvement and broaden their horizons, returning home with better personal skills and a sense of the issues facing the global community.
RMA is a founding sponsor of the AIESEC program. It identifies the most promising talent at the university level, and through business planning competitions awards the best volunteers internship assignments in RMA offices in different parts of the world. Upon graduation from their internship posts, the best are offered permanent postings with the RMA Group. Mr. Rami Sharaf, RMA Country Manager, is, himself, the volunteer Chairman of the AIESEC Cambodia Board.
Commitment to Community Through JCI
JCI is a membership based non-profit organization of more than 200,000 young people, ages 18 ~ 40, in over 5,000 communities in over 100 countries.
JCI members share the belief that in order to create positive change, that to engage in activities from community development to international projects, members can demonstrate social responsibility, improve themselves and the world around them through participation, leadership and action.
RMA is a partner with JCI in Cambodia to many of its activities to benefit society through example and for young people to contribute and create positive change.
RMA is committed to this partnership. The most recent activity of cleaning Phnom Penh, (Let’s do it Phnom Penh 2012!) is a great example of this partnership.
RMA is committed to programs of sustainability and is dedicated to the wellbeing of the environment. We will work with partners who share these same values.
The Ford Blueprint for Sustainability. RMA takes an active role in Ford Motor Company’s corporate sustainability program. This is centered on a science-based global strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It advances realistic, effective climate change solutions that can work today. It is transforming current and future product and service planning as RMA introduces new products and technologies that significantly cut fuel consumption and emissions.
On August 21, 2011, part of Ford’s campaign, Global Week of Caring, in a commitment to preserve and sustain the environment in Siem Reap province, more than 1,000 volunteers from RMA Cambodia Ford, many customers, students, and officers of JCI Cambodia gave their time and talent to support the environment by planting 990 trees along National Road #6 leading to Siem Reap International Airport.
RMA Cambodia. A History of Corporate Citizenship
Reducing Emissions: Looking at a challenge from new angles can result in innovative solutions. RMA and its long-time business partner, Ford Motor Company, began using wheat straw-reinforced plastic rather than 100 percent traditional petroleum products to create plastic storage bins. This change is estimated to reduce petroleum use by 20,000 pounds and CO2 emissions by 30,000 pounds per year.
Young Volunteers Engagement in the Decade of Action for Road Safety
From June to December 2011, to assist in making roads safer for all Cambodians, RMA Cambodia with Ford, working with the Cambodian Red Cross, donated 250 helmets and $3,000 to support projects for Road Safety.
