We are committed to more than just giving back to education & healthcare.
Learn how VOS makes an impact on the planet as well.
An on-site nurse is supported on the natural rubber farms where our sustainable raw materials are sourced. She in turn provides individual face-to-face attention and basic diagnosis and treatment to more than 500 natural rubber farmers and their families. In addition, we have developed educational programs to provide primary, secondary, high school and university education opportunities to over 250 children and 250 adults in the VOS supply chain.
We support the natural rubber communities by fostering healthy children under 5 years old by providing them with nutritional supplements and vitamins, providing various types of vaccinations to children under 7, facilitating preventative infection campaigns and supplying them with essential medicines. We believe that child and adult educational programs are keys to empowering the communities that are directly part of our sustainable supply chain.
Our sustainable sourcing practices align with the United Nations Global Compact since they are a leader within ethical standard certifications and global sustainability initiatives. In doing so, we support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges; undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility and encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly products and technologies consistently around the globe.
