Corporate Social Responsibility
“Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR, also called corporate conscience, corporate citizenship, social performance, or sustainable responsible business/ Responsible Business) is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business model. CSR policy functions as a built-in, self-regulating mechanism whereby a business monitors and ensures its active compliance with the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and international norms”.

We, at DCICHS do not regard CSR as a compliance issue. We believe that it is important that we channel resources (financial and non-financial) toward supporting the sustainable economic development and transformation of our country. For us CSR is a process with the aim to embrace responsibility for the company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere.
As a company with strong South African roots, DCICHS is passionate about contributing to the communities in which they operate. Improving the lives of people, across the board is at the heart of our Corporate Social Responsibility. Through various initiatives we endeavour to make a difference in the lives of those who really need it. There are a range of existing and new initiatives that DCICHS has committed to:
Proud to be the major sponsor of the Knysna Bafana football club, based in the Western Cape’s Garden Route.
DCICHS is playing its part in the national agenda of skills development by offering internships and hands-on training to develop better leaders for the future.
