Giving back to our communities is central to our business purpose. This is reflected in our company value of “Care,” one of the 5Cs of our culture, which promotes caring, not just about our own people, but also our communities and our place in the world at large. We believe we have a special social responsibility, and our employees value the time and resources we collectively give to their local communities.
The ESI Foundation focuses on causes important to the environmental and social well-being of our communities, such as The Canopy Project, which helped us celebrate Earth Day and the 150th and 100th anniversary of two of our legacy businesses with the planting of trees around the world as well as Equality Now, which protects and promotes the human rights of women.
Our Foundation also makes meaningful donations and grants to local charities selected by our employees as well as to global organizations, such as Doctors Without Borders, Save the Children, Amnesty International UK, the Everglades Foundation and The Rainforest Alliance.
