Corporate Social Responsibility
“Ethical working conditions are not a privilege, but a right. We always strive to do the right thing to make sure everyone in the Danby family, in Canada, US, and abroad, is treated with dignity and respect. Our Supplier Code of Conduct ensures our supply chain partners do the right thing as well.”
– Jim Estill, Owner and CEO
Danby takes very seriously the working conditions and safety of everyone in our supply chains and insists our supply chain partners adhere to four key areas of social conduct;
Diversity & Inclusion
We recognize that diversity, inclusion and equity make us a stronger, more successful company. We know we need to do better, and acknowledge there is still much work ahead to dismantle barriers in our leadership pipeline. But we are and always have been an equal-opportunity employer, offer equal pay for equal work and believe hiring and promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce is always the right thing to do.
Being a leader in our community, and helping those less fortunate than ourselves, is at the root of everything we do at Danby. This stems from our CEO, Jim Estill, who is incredibly active from a charitable perspective and preaches the simple idea to always “Do the Right Thing”. Jim became a household name during the Syrian refugee crisis, receiving the Order of Canada for his work, and he continues to be an active member in any charitable initiative or foundation that needs a helping hand.
For Danby and its customers, sustainability is very important. Every unit that is refurbished as “Danby Certified” helps to reduce the amount of recycling and waste being sent to a landfill, as well as lowers greenhouse gas production at our manufacturing plants. Our goal is to always work towards a more sustainable future.
