Corporate Social Responsibility
Over the past forty years, our parent company NRS International has focused on creating products that serve the public and alleviate suffering, while simultaneously building sustainable employment opportunities in Pakistan. In 2009, NRS International created the Bilqees Sarwar Foundation (BSF) to improve public health care. Our commitment to sustainable business practices underscores our commitment to our employees, our products and production, and to the global community.
Responsibility to our employees
We strongly believe in the benefits of a diverse and large workforce. We recognise that female empowerment is fundamental to the progress of communities, and as a result, our factory H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons (HSNDS) in Lahore, Pakistan, has a unit completely managed and staffed by women.
Responsibility to our products and production
We strive to bring innovative products to the market and meet end-user needs. Quality and regulatory compliance are of the highest priority. We set high standards for our production processes and maintain transparent reporting throughout the supply chain. We place great emphasis in monitoring our waste reduction, employee safety, and have introduced new tools to streamline our manufacturing process.
Responsibility to the global community
The Bilqees Sarwar Foundation, which is a registered foundation in Lahore, Pakistan, aims to provide public health and education support to the community. BSF’s work has evolved over the years and we have expanded our charitable donations to include public health, education and humanitarian relief priorities.

UN Global Compact’s Communication on Progress 2016
NRS International has submitted its Communication on Progress (COP) to the United Nations Global Compact for the period February 2016 to February 2017. The Global Compact is a UN initiative that encourages businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation through an annual COP.
NRS International’s COP 2016 report discusses who we are, describes our work towards the Global Compact’s ten principles, and details our commitments to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the World Humanitarian Summit. According to our self-assessment, our COP meets all minimum requirements and qualifies for the GC Active Level.
