Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Policy

Last update: 18 June 2019

K. A. Kourtellos & Co LLC (“Firm”) is committed to respecting the economy, our community and the environment, in the best interest of all stakeholders. This Policy starts from the Firm, in line with our strongly embedded Culture, Initiatives and Principles.

Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) is an important priority for the Firm and our business approach contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits.

We designed this Policy to provide an overview of the responsible business approach of the Firm. Of course if there are alternatives ways of proceeding, we encourage people and clients to let us know.

Purpose, Performance and Progress

The Firm desires substantial change within corporate culture in relation to perceptions on the link between the economy, our community and the environment. Our associates and clients positively welcome the sustainable practices that we adopt.

We are content by positively contributing to the needs of our diverse communities, fulfilling our responsibilities to the public, and minimizing any adverse environmental impact of our business activities. We endeavor to incorporate various forms of social responsibility into our own and our clients’ business, for meaningful action and a positive impact towards sustainable development.
