As part of the Bacardi commitment to the communities where it operates, employees are encouraged to participate in programs and activities on behalf of the Company. This participation by employees increased the public’s awareness of the nature and extent of Bacardi community involvement and also generates among our people a strong sense of pride in themselves and in our Company.

Within the Philanthropy and Community Involvement (PCI) pillar, we engage our employees – and through their participation, raise awareness of our approach to Corporate Responsibility. We hold a global flagship community event each calendar year. Initiatives are managed by local operations, which are closer to their communities. We provide support in four broad areas:

  • Arts and culture
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Health and social services
  • 9,610 hours Bacardi employees in 37 countries
    around the world contributed 9,610
    hours of their time in FY2015.

    Strategy

    Decentralised approach to Philanthropy and Community Involvement with our local operations deciding how best to support their local communities

    Our PCI strategy is directional, rather than prescriptive. This enables our operations to carry out community activities that are relevant locally and can assist in meeting community

    needs. One important goal of our PCI program is to engage our people in corporate responsibility. Corporate Responsibility Month, our annual flagship event engages our global workforce and gives our employees the opportunity to be involved in community activities.
