EcoVadis is the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains.

CSR is a self-regulating business model that helps organizations be socially accountable to the public, company stakeholders and itself. In short, CSR describes how a company contributes to improving society. Providing socially responsible connectivity solutions is at the center of DCS’ values. It is a priority for DCS to live out the mission of CSR and continue to conduct business in a way that positively impacts society from an economic, environmental and human rights perspective. One way DCS accomplishes this is by implementing a Plan-Do-Check-Act, a four-step system that is incorporated in their quality management system. This commitment to CSR is echoed in the DCS Purpose Statement: “To create a culture, and a company, that changes the lives of our coworkers, customers and community.”
