Corporate Social Responsibility Policy & Statement
XY Sense is a company which has designed and engineered an advanced smart sensor platform to increase the utilisation and efficiency of the modern office. We help companies use data to create smarter workplaces that people love.
XY Sense is committed to meeting the needs of our customers but we recognise that our company’s existence is not lonely. It’s part of a bigger system of people, values, other organisations and nature. The social responsibility of a business is to give back to the world just as it gives to us.
This policy document outlines our efforts to give back to the world as it gives to us.
We want to be a responsible business that meets the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.
Our company’s social responsibility falls under two categories: compliance and proactiveness. Compliance refers to our company’s commitment to legality and willingness to observe community values. Proactiveness is every initiative to promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural environment.
Our company will:
● Respect the law
● Honour its internal policies
● Ensure that all its business operations are legitimate
● Keep every partnership and collaboration open and transparent
We’ll always conduct business with integrity and respect to human rights. We’ll promote:
● Safety and fair dealing
● Respect toward the consumer
● Anti-bribery and anti-corruption practices
Examples of Corporate Social Responsibility
Protecting the environment
Our company recognises the need to protect the natural environment. Keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to all. We’ve designed our sensor hardware to meet specific environmental and sustainability criteria and actively govern our supply chain to ensure sustainable business practices.

We’ll ensure that we:
● Don’t risk the health and safety of our employees and community. Check out our workplace health and safety policy here.
● Avoid harming the lives of local and indigenous people.
● Support diversity and inclusion.
Our company is dedicated to protecting human rights. We are a committed equal opportunity employer and will abide by all fair labour practices. We’ll ensure that our activities do not directly or indirectly violate human rights in any country (e.g. forced labor).
Donations and aid
Our company may preserve a budget to make monetary donations. These donations will aim to:
● Advance the arts, education and community events.
● Alleviate those in need.
Our company encourages its employees to volunteer. They can volunteer through programs organised internally or externally. Our company may sponsor volunteering events from other organizations.
Preserving the environment
Apart from legal obligations, our company has implemented a variety of sustainable business practices to proactively protect the environment. Examples of relevant activities include:
Recycling (both within our business and where possible throughout our supply chain)
Identifying opportunities to divert, minimise, reuse and recycle our waste stream.
Incorporating environmental considerations into procurement processes.
Limiting unnecessary travel
Educating our employees about the steps XY Sense is taking to help protect the environment and providing channels for employees to contribute to our efforts.
Supporting the community
Our company may initiate and support community investment and educational programs. For example, providing support to nonprofit organisations or movements to promote cultural and economic development of global and local communities.
We will actively invest in R&D. We will be open to suggestions and listen carefully to ideas. Our company will try to continuously improve the way it operates
XY Sense is committed to the successful implementation of this policy. To achieve results, XY Sense develops and actively monitors short- and long-term Corporate Social Responsibility objectives.
Our company is committed to the United Nations Global Compact. We’ll readily act to promote our identity as a socially aware and responsible business.
