A Corporation that Cares
Any company can abide by the basic legal and ethical obligations of good business, but strong, healthy companies invest time, thought, and resources into living and working as responsible corporate citizens.
Corporate citizenship is a dimension of business ethics that refers to a company’s economic, social, and environmental responsibilities. It recognizes the relationship among our shareholders, our communities, and the natural world: our shareholders represent part of our communities, our communities represent the context of our lives, and the natural world represents the context of our communities. The interests of one rest on the interests of the others.
For this reason, a good corporate citizen does not compromise the health of its surrounding communities and environment for the profit of its shareholders, because it realizes that, in the long-run, the health and profit of all three are inextricably linked.
Branch Group maintains a longstanding tradition of recognizing the economic, social, and environmental responsibilities of good corporate citizenship. We do so by four primary avenues: financial contributions, sponsorships, in-kind donations, and charitable time off. Our Corporate Charitable Giving Policy, Branch Gives, articulates each of these avenues.
