Entanet has today outlined its commitment to the wider community through a new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee of 13 company volunteers.
The purpose of the committee is to develop, run and coordinate the CSR activities of Entanet throughout the year, focusing on four main areas:
- charitable giving and fundraising;
- environmental impact; and
- diversity and inclusion.
“Entanet is already well known for its charitable activities and our staff are passionate about making a positive difference in the community. The introduction of the new CSR committee provides an even stronger focus and direction for these activities,” said Elsa Chen, CEO of Entanet.
Shortlist of good causes
The committee’s first task was to create a shortlist of good causes and arrange a staff vote to decide Entanet’s national and local nominated charities for 2018/19. Entanet is delighted to announce that as a result of this vote its national nominated charity will be Meningitis Now and its local charity will be Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
Steve Dayman, our Executive Founder, said, “We’re delighted that Entanet has chosen to support us. As a charity that receives no government funding we rely entirely on the generosity, energy and initiative of our supporters to raise the vital funds we need to carry out our lifesaving and life-changing work."
“Every penny Entanet raises will help us fight this devastating disease on all fronts, from funding pioneering preventative research, raising awareness and supporting people affected."
Make a real difference
“It will make a real difference to those who are at risk from the disease and those whose lives have already been changed forever because of it.”
In 2017 Entanet raised over £7,000 for a variety of charities including Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Severn Hospice and SANDS. Events included a Christmas raffle, Christmas party donations, casual dress days and even braving a Tough Mudder challenge.
“We’re really excited about the announcement of Entanet’s nominated charities and we’re looking forward to working with colleagues on a range of activities to support these great causes as well as a range of other important CSR initiatives,” said Steven Wood, Chair of Entanet’s CSR Committee.
