Fidelity International seeks to support a number of charitable causes to improve the lives of others, support the environment in which we operate and to generate employee engagement and pride in our activities.
Our global programme of corporate citizenship activity reflects our values of: Innovation, Excellence and Integrity and to actively engage with those communities where we have a presence.
Our approach to Corporate Citizenship concentrates on:
Wherever Fidelity International operates we will seek to support charitable causes with the aim of improving the lives of others. In addition to the charitable investments made by Fidelity's philanthropic Foundations, we do this by engaging with our employees so they decide on the local causes we support and thereby help to build better futures for the communities in which we operate. Read more here about our criteria for support.
Our environment is very important to us and our employees. Wherever we operate we will seek to implement good environmental practices for the benefits of our employees and our communities, as well as participating in environmental initiatives for the benefit of the wider population.
We seek to engage with our employees and invite them to participate in a range of activities relating to corporate citizenship. This can include local fund raising for charitable causes which the company supports with grant matching funds raised, sponsorship of charitable and community events, and employee volunteering opportunities. The aim is to encourage employee participation and engagement, generating pride in our association with such worthwhile causes and at the same time, giving back to our communities.
