Supporting local and global initiatives is highly valued in the company’s goals and values; benefiting the community, staff morale and the company as a whole. We are proudly an official participant in the United Nations Global Compact – the world’s largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative. This is a strong demonstration of our commitment to advancing the tenets of corporate sustainability and the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact. Our selected charity for 2013 is The Children’s Medical and Research Foundation, also known as Crumlin Children’s Hospital, for whom we have already raised over €13,150. We are also the main sponsor for Kilcullen Cycling Club for 10 years, a group based in the region of our Irish head office.
