Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the continuing commitment of a business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce, their families and the local community at large. In other terms, CSR is how a company manages its business operations to produce an overall positive impact on society.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, therefore reflect our commitment to be good Corporate Citizens. We achieve this by promoting the well-being of each employee, investing in sustainable ventures, fostering the growth of our culture, supporting community initiatives and by raising awareness on cancer and healthy living.
HADCO GROUP FOUNDATION
Established in 2017 in memory of Maria Hadad to help employees who have suffered the consequences of a natural disaster or chronic disease or major illness.
The work of the Foundation does not stop there as it provides poverty and deprivation relief and assistance to communities in dire need.
Contributions to the foundation are made by employees. It is through our combined resources and the generosity and compassion we have for each other that we continue to thrive.
The well-being of each member of our HADCO Group family is reflected in the prosperity of our Organisation. This is the goal we achieve and the principles we uphold through the HADCO Group Foundation.
FRIENDS IN THE FIGHT
For over 10 years, General Mills/Yoplait has been donating funds in collaboration with Scotiabank for their annual 5K Walk Against Breast Cancer. HADCO Limited, the sole distributor of Yoplait in Trinidad & Tobago, has joined the fight against cancer by donating to various cancer foundations and building awareness around the cause.
HADCO Group has always promoted healthy living and we constantly strive to integrate our products with these values. We would like to see more persons join us in our drive to lead healthier, longer lives!
HADCO PHASE II PAN GROOVE
In December 2015, HADCO Group joined forces with Phase II Pan Groove forming a partnership which allowed the steel orchestra to retain their name and identity. Over the years this partnership evolved, and in 2018 HADCO Group’s relationship with Phase II Pan Groove was further strengthened when the steel orchestra adopted the name HADCO Phase II Pan Groove.
With a deep national pride, coupled with passion, HADCO Group is committed to not just financially supporting the steel orchestra, but to promote growth, development, and good governance while continuing to honour the musical genius and legacy of Len “Boogsie” Sharpe. The goal is to ensure that HADCO Phase II Pan Groove continues to maintain its irrefutable foothold as one of the best in the steel pan music industry.
HADCO Group takes immense pride in partnering with great artists, organizations, events and causes that are integral to our community. For example, over the years we have partnered with local artiste and now filmmaker Etienne Charles on some of his initiatives like Etienne Charles Carnival: The Sound of a People. We have also supported through our brands, the launch of local movies and publications, fundraising events for schools and initiatives by the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
