Making a difference...
How Bidvest Waltons is making a difference?
Providing disadvantaged South Africans with the tools they need to unlock their potential is of great importance to us. We believe that each and every one of us is responsible for building South Africa and making a difference.
The focus of our on-going community initiatives is aimed at the upliftment of disadvantaged black communities through education and life skills training.
As we grow, we remain committed to setting aside a percentage of profits for the betterment of communities and focused skills development. Nationally, and at branch level, we are constantly engaging with causes aligned with our socio-economic development strategy.
Boosting our schools
Supporting disadvantaged schools is imperative, especially as so many schools lack basic resources. We regularly contribute donations of stationery, furniture and other equipment to schools in need, and have run a number of projects and competitions over the years to this end. Bidvest Waltons is also a registered MySchool partner, which sees a number of worthy causes receiving consistent financial support.
We believe that everyone can contribute to the growth of South Africa, even if it’s as simple as a cause-and-effect chain reaction that results in good. This sentiment is at the heart of our internal Make a Difference campaign.
The campaign is aimed at creating positive change and channeling our sales target successes into funding for worthy causes, nominated by our branches. In line with our corporate social investment policies, beneficiaries must be BEE compliant to qualify for nomination (minimum 75%).
We recognise the importance of preserving the environment for future generations.
We are also strongly aware of our impact on the environment, and remain committed to reducing our carbon footprint through the use and advocacy of recyclable materials and carbon-friendly components wherever possible.
We are always on the lookout for green opportunities, ethical sourcing is a prime concern and we try to source products locally and with a reduced carbon footprint in mind wherever possible. We aspire continuously to purchase more and more from ISO-accredited suppliers.
