London, UK - Market Research Company Euromonitor International launched today a new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme donating one percent of its turnover, equivalent to over £1 million, to good causes.
From the beginning of April 2017, Euromonitor International will substantially increase the company’s financial giving towards environmental protection, health improvement and poverty alleviation, by adding twelve new charity partners over the coming year nominated by over 1,300 Euromonitor employees.
Today, Euromonitor is pleased to announce the first three global partnerships:
- The Walkabout Foundation, a charity focusing on funding research to find a cure for paralysis and donating wheelchairs to people in need around the world.
- The Karam Foundation develops education programs for Syrian refugees, distributing smart aid to Syrian families and funding sustainable development projects initiated by Syrians for Syrians.
- Spark Ventures builds partnerships that lift communities out of poverty by directing resources around the world to provide health, education and jobs.
Alongside these organisations, Euromonitor continues to support existing partners such as Just a Drop, the World Land Trust and Save the Orangutan, as well as work on reducing energy consumption by five percent in its offices globally.
In addition to these twelve new partners, the programme will work towards community engagement, sustainability policies, global health and wellness and supporting employee fund-raising activities.
Euromonitor’s employees are key players in the company’s CSR activities, from volunteering with local charities to organising fundraising initiatives. The company is also a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact since May 2012, ensuring no slavery or human trafficking is applied in the business and supply chain.
“We are a successful, growing and profitable business which puts us in a position to give back. As the gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ widens, companies such as Euromonitor International need to do more to address this,” said Euromonitor International Chief Executive, Tim Kitchin.
