Social Responsibility

Electromate strives to manage our business and operations with Corporate Social Responsibility in mind at all times. We accomplish this by:

  • Conducting business in a socially responsible and ethical manner;
  • Protecting the environment and the safety of people;
  • Supporting human rights;
  • Engaging, learning from, respecting and supporting the communities and cultures with which we work;
  • Monitoring and reporting performance; and
  • Making a commitment to sustainable development.

 

CORPORATE COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Electromate is committed to supporting our community and encourages our employees to contribute by getting involved in making a positive social impact by donating some of their time to volunteering.  Electromate supports this initiative by way of our Volunteer Time Off Policy.

Corporate Philanthropy is the act of a corporation or business promoting the welfare of others, generally through charitable donations of funds or time. At Electromate, charitable donations take the form of employee Donation Matching gifts, which means that if an employee donates to a registered charity or nonprofit organization, Electromate will donate money to the same nonprofit according to a discretionary match ratio. 

Good citizenship is good business and we want to demonstrate our responsibility to society through our actions in supporting, learning from and enhancing our community. This applies not only to those communities in which we live and do business, but globally to communities in need.

At Electromate, we focus on select non-profits based on employee feedback and Management support. This allows us to build meaningful partnerships and directly address the most important needs of each organization.

Culture Committee

Electromate has a Culture Committee that meets regularly and oversees our volunteer and community support efforts.  We support our chosen non-profits financially, with volunteer hours, and with donation drives.

Community Programs

We are proud to support WE.org, an international charity and educational partner. Their organization is unique among Canadian charities in that it operates collaborative programs both domestically and internationally. WE Charity is a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world. Their slogan is "Making doing good, doable".

Electromate has pledged to fund the building of one school per year in Rongena, Kenya through WE.org.  To track the progress of the school we are building click on https://www.trackyourimpact.com/my-impact/711811/ .
