Community Work

City Hearing practices the principles of global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Peter leads by example and encourages company staff and business associates in getting involved to promote environmental sustainability, fair business, social justice and giving back to the community.

Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.
