One word comes to mind when AOS thinks of certain current & historical global events: unprecedented. Such events have tested companies in several ways and changed mainstream discourse about the role corporations should play in advancing and addressing social & global challenges. Therefore, AOS has embarked on its role of being a strong “corporate citizen” by way of our Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) Initiatives. There’s no turning back! Moving forward is the only direction for AOS and the expectation is that AOS will continue to expand our activism on, and investment in, the issues that matter to our resources, customers & communities.
AOS CSR initiatives may involve incurring short-term costs that do NOT provide an immediate or long term financial benefit to the company, but instead promote positive social and environmental change. Moreover, AOS CSR typically allocates a percentage of its operating expenses annually, at its discretion, to fund and/or give to its CSR initiatives. Lastly, AOS CSR efforts often go beyond that of any regulated and social / environmental protection groups.
