Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of their workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large. Cork Chamber occupies a vital role in leading and developing business activity and growth in the Cork Region. Our promise ”Advancing Business Together” reflects the Chamber’s member centric approach in driving our members’ businesses forward and leading the successful growth of both the Chamber membership and our regional economy. We understand that our commitment to our members is our most vital product and through the authentic relationships we create we are building better, stronger and more sustainable communities in the places where we work, live and play.
In 2018, to help us give back to the communities that we live and work in, Cork Chamber partnered with 41 community organisations across Ireland, including IWish, Age Action and Focus Ireland. Through these community links, our employees gave 354 volunteer hours and fundraised €8,575, in addition to company support of €30,005 in cash donations and €36,810 worth of in-kind donations.
