Corporate responsibility

Helping to create a beautiful future.

It makes good business sense to consider the impact of our operations on the broader society in which we operate.

MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT ON SOCIETY

We believe that as a corporate entity we have a role to play in making our society sustainable. We achieve this through initiatives like our:

  • Corporate social investment (CSI) programme,
  • Enterprise development, and
  • Responsible marketing and advertising initiatives.

RESPONSIBLE WORKPLACE PRACTICES

In our pursuit to promote responsible and sustainable workplace practices we consider the following key areas:

  • Occupational health & safety
  • Employee work-life-balance
  • Preferential procurement

"We consider the impact of our operations on the broader environment. Examples of initiatives are waste management, carbon disclosure and energy consumption."

CSI

Our purpose 

Our purpose is to make a meaningful, tangible difference to communities, and in so doing fulfil our purpose of effecting positive change in South Africa. A secondary purpose is to provide Futuregrowth employees with a platform to “live” our brand and further enrich their own lives by doing good for others.

Our process

Futuregrowth allocates 1% of its after tax profits to CSI. An internal Corporate Social Investment Committee vets the projects under review. Committee members are invited to serve on the committee based on their passion for, and interest in, social development work in and among socio-economically deprived communities. All staff are encouraged to participate in our CSI projects.

Our geographical focus includes areas that committee members are able to visit personally, so that they can conduct a thorough due diligence process on proposed projects, and monitor those approved on an ongoing basis. The proximity of a project to our offices also makes it more feasible for our broader staff complement to be actively involved. We will, however, consider projects across the country in collaboration with partner organisations who are able to do the due diligence on our behalf.

Our key focus areas

Our key focus areas of support fall within the three broad CSI categories of social development, health and education. 

Social Development
  • Elderly people
  • Poverty alleviation
  • Women and children at risk
  • Community development
  • Capacity building
Education
  • Adult Basic Education Training (ABET)
  • Early childhood development
  • Specific interventions at primary and senior school level
Health
  • Disabled people
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Hospital e.g. infrastructure and equipment
  • Palliative care
