ITC and Corporate Social Responsibility
During our last team meeting we were wondering what good deeds we could do to contribute to social welfare and what else we could do to protect the environment; so far we have been recycling, saving lots of paper by using PDFs, saving energy and petrol by offering remote IT support . While having some chocolate during lunch, Marta, our Marketing & PR Co-ordinator suggested: “Why don’t we start having fairtrade and organic snacks to support better trading conditions and promote sustainability?”
We all loved the idea, so today, we went to TESCO and found organic chocolate, fairtrade bananas, and we also bought TESCO snacks which guaranteed donating to cancer research UK. All of us agreed that lunch tastes better when we know that the products we’re having support medical research and help transform the lives of producers and employees in the developing world.
Even though, we’re a small business, we still feel that as an organisation we are responsible for contributing to social welfare.
