LIBRA INDUSTRIES CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
Libra is deeply committed to acting with integrity and responsibility in everything we do – in all of our actions with our employees, our customers, our suppliers, and with the communities in which we live and work. With decades long presence at all locations (up to 85 years!), great tenure across our employee base (up to 50 years!) and decades long relationships with our customers and suppliers, it’s obvious that we place high value on long term partnerships. That’s why we place high importance in doing things the right way. We are in it for the long haul!
OUR COMMITMENT TO THE WELL-BEING OF OUR EMPLOYEES
At Libra, we truly believe that our people are our most valuable asset, and the basis for everything we do and achieve at Libra. We strongly believe in the importance of supporting our employees while treating them fairly and ethically. Through our many employee programs, we strive every day to improve

Our complete code of conduct expectations is extended to our supply chain, starting with our supplier evaluation and qualification process, so that the foundation of our supplier partnerships is grounded in shared values.
