Magnate identified social responsibility as a strategic initiative for 2020 and has built a grassroots program through support by the many passionate members of our team who have volunteered their time to grow the program. We believe our company has an opportunity to help make the world a better place by operating sustainably, with consideration for all people, our planet, and by creating positive outcomes in the communities which we live and serve.
Magnate CARES (C=Community, A=Action, R=Resources, E=Environment, S=Sustainability) is the aggregation and organization of the projects taken on by our companies, teams, and individuals. It includes all the great things we have done so far, and what we plan to do in the future as a company.
The program will reach across each of our companies to form a coalition of dedicated individuals who will lead our efforts with a purpose-driven mission, entrepreneurial approach, and commitment to transparency. We are calling this group the CARES Coalition.
We will organize our efforts around the topics of workplace and environment, community engagement, charities and goodwill efforts, employee action, and volunteer work. If you would like to learn more about our social responsibility program, please visit our new webpage or contact CARES@magnateworldwide.com.
