The goal of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is to embrace responsibility for a company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere. CSR is the deliberate inclusion of the public’s welfare and the concept of sustainability into a company’s decision-making, which is the foundation on which ORA Dental group is built.

Through its network of international partners, CSE offers formal training, education, and certification in CSR, sustainability, and excellence globally. Accredited by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA), the CSE certification process measures the strategic abilities and technical skills of professionals working in CSR and sustainability, and is a critical step for successful management of any progressive corporation with goals of sustainability.
“The CSR-P designation distinguishes a professional as someone who is knowledgeable, confident and employs international sustainability and CSR best practices and frameworks to add significant value to their organization,” says Nikos Avlonas, CSE President. “Dr. Koos, at ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio, joins an elite group of approximately 110 certified Sustainability and CSR Practitioners representing more than 18 countries.”
