Our Corporate Citizenship and philanthropic contributions

Having a diversified approach to corporate citizenship ensures we make full use of the different types of capital at our disposal, including financial and talent. We manage our corporate citizenship/philanthropic program with a clear direction and focus on our guiding principles as outlined in our citizenship strategy. Doing so enables us to have awareness of community impact, direct beneficiaries and full costs.
