CONSIDER HOW WE CARE
Getting involved on the ground
Cognisant of the wider socio-economic environment in which we operate, IMPERIAL Logistics is committed to positively impacting people. Through dedicated corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes, we apply a hands-on approach to nurture sustainable community development.
During the previous financial year, the Group invested over 1% of net profit after tax in IMPERIAL CSR programmes and is committed to increasing this contribution over the coming fiscal. In addition to a range of initiatives to ensure the health and safety of IMPERIAL Logistics' drivers, our primary focus areas are HIV/Aids and poverty alleviation, through which we invest significantly in education-based initiatives. Our HIV/Aids projects are undertaken in partnership with the Road Freight Association and the National Bargaining Council for the Road Freight Industry.
On the education front, IMPERIAL Logistics' employees support the IMPERIAL and Ukhamba Community Development Trust on a volunteer basis. The Trust is a registered non-governmental organisation that has introduced educational initiatives in seven schools in underserviced areas around Johannesburg, since 2005. Particular emphasis is placed on language programmes and sports development.
