CiplaQCIL is committed to adopting best practices in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), guided by the principle of shared values and partnerships. We demonstrate this by practising our values of Quality & Excellence, Accountability, Integrity, Customer focus, Teamwork, and Innovation, which are entrenched in all of our policies and operating practices.
As part of those values we take responsibility in protecting the environment, supporting the communities in which we operate, and more broadly in helping to create stronger and more sustainable societies. We are vested in creating a sustainable, long-term business, and becoming the preferred company for our customers, employees, and other stakeholders.
CiplaQCIL is committed to fulfilment of its social responsibility by focusing on activities that promote shared values particularly relating to:
CiplaQCIL is committed to reducing its impact on the environment by actively managing its waste, emissions, and its consumption of natural resources. Beyond ourselves, we aim to promote environmental awareness among our stakeholders, improve the understanding of global environmental risks, and support the fight against environmental degradation especially in our community. We do this by engaging in community activities that promote and enhance environmental protection and encouraging environmentally responsible behaviour through the development and/or promotion of specialized programs.
From the onset, CiplaQCIL developed environmental management practices that minimize waste and maximize efficiencies (reducing consumption levels of paper, power, water). We adhere to high environmental standards for all new office facilities, implement environmental reporting processes that are internationally accepted, effectively manage environmental impacts, and respond to the needs and aspirations of staff that promote work-life balance, health, and well-being. CiplaQCIL has been an active member of the Uganda Corporate League covering 43 corporate organizations with the objective of bringing together communities through sport and in the process improving health related performance at work. CiplaQCIL has been the overall winner of this League for three consecutive years i.e. 2011, 2012, and 2013.
CiplaQCIL established a scholarship scheme for purposes of supporting science students to boost a human resource base that is relevant to our industry. The scheme targets promising young students that are financially challenged.
CiplaQCIL also runs a competitive internship programme with all public universities in the country, with a bias in science-related industrial training. Over 70 interns are housed at this facility for an average of three months every year.
Similarly, CiplaQCIL entered an understanding with a neighbourhood community school, Bishop Cypriano Kihangire Senior Secondary School in Luzira for holiday employment and mentorship. Under the arrangement, CiplaQCIL takes on the best two science students in S.6; a boy and a girl, in a bid to encourage sciences in schools, a policy being promoted by government.
