At Active International, we believe that our actions as a company impact not only our employees and direct stakeholders, but also the community and environment in which we operate. In line with this philosophy, we have launched Active Cares in Canada, our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
Active Cares represents our commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development, while improving the quality of life of our workforce as well as the local Canadian community and society as a whole. We’ve developed three strategic pillars in our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Through this holistic approach Active will be able to integrate our CSR initiatives entirely within our business model, to ensure long-term sustainability.
A key component of the Social pillar of our program is the designation of Food Banks Canada as our official Corporate Charity.
Over 882,000 Canadians are turning to Food banks each month. 38% of them are children. Food Banks Canada is the only national charitable organization representing and supporting the food bank community across Canada, and strives to meet the short-term need for food, and find long-term solutions to hunger. We will direct all corporate charitable efforts through Food Banks Canada in their mission through donations of funds, inventory, media space, and employee volunteering.
We are happy to celebrate the launch of our next chapter to not only become a trusted business partner, but a trusted community partner too.
