Supporting local communities

DKSH corporate social responsibility

Throughout our history, being a responsible corporate citizen has been the foundation of our success. At DKSH, we do business in a way that is profitable while also taking care of and having a positive impact on society.

As we are deeply rooted in the communities we serve, we actively engage in a wide range of local initiatives. DKSH encourages and empowers its local entities to initiate their own as well as cooperate in regional or Group-wide initiatives that may be centered on infrastructure development, disaster recovery, environmental programs, education or philanthropic projects.

Along with growing our business, we contribute to the development of infrastructures and promotion of economic development across Asia. As a company with a long-term focus, we offer employment security and provide stability to local communities. With us, local talents in Asia receive training, knowledge and opportunities to develop themselves within an international environment. Our capillary distribution network enhances the quality of life of millions of people as we distribute consumer goods and healthcare products to meet their daily needs.

In 2014, we continued to demonstrate this commitment to local communities through new and existing initiatives. These projects include donating Christmas presents to disadvantaged children in Taiwan, sponsoring a rugby day with disadvantaged and disabled children in Cambodia, preparing and distributing food to the needy in Hong Kong and organizing the Fantree Club-Alladdin charity run 2014 in Malaysia raising funds for welfare homes for the elderly and underprivileged children.
