RMA Corporate Citizenship
Integrity at the Company Level
Corporate citizenship is an important concern at RMA. The Company embraces a commitment of responsibility to employees and the people with whom we work – and to the values that shape their ways of life. An essential aspect of RMA’s culture is caring for the communities in which we operate.
RMA helps create social and economic opportunity wherever it conducts business. We are mindful of how we manage our social footprint and the positive contribution it can make in people’s lives, and on the communities of which we are a member.
As a worldwide employer, RMA supports the rights of individuals and cares for them as neighbors. We subscribe to the concept of equal opportunity, to creating a positive work environment, and offering people the kind of training that will help them realize their full potential.

RMA supports this compact and ensures that its own actions support and embrace the protections of internationally accepted human rights and rejects rights abuses. RMA supports the elimination of discrimination in the workplace and the abolition of child labor. Read more about the UN Global Compact and its principles

RMA. A History of Corporate Citizenship
Oil Recycled: The customary removal of used engine oil in the Afghan army was simple. Dump it. RMA introduced an easy-to-manage solution that saved money and introduced the concept of reduced waste management. The oil was filtered and recycled several times, saving money and the environment.
Reducing Emissions: Looking at a challenge from new angles can result in innovative solutions. RMA and its long-time business partner, Ford Motor Company, began using wheat straw-reinforced plastic rather than 100 percent traditional petroleum products to create plastic storage bins. This change is estimated to reduce petroleum use by 20,000 pounds and CO2 emissions by 30,000 pounds per year.
