We support our employees’ efforts to make a difference in their local communities.
2015 was the first full year of SEGRO’s new approach to how we manage our charitable work and donations. We now operate a Central Charity Committee with four specific sub-committees for the Business Units which agree independently which charities to support. Membership of the Committee is open to all employees and we support as many of our employees’ charitable efforts as we can.
In 2015, we donated the equivalent of £886,741 in the form of direct donations (£212,845), employee fundraising (£53,691) and assistance in kind (£620,205).
In addition, our employees more than doubled the amount of their time they gave to charities, from 44 to 103 days.
Following the terrorist attacks in November in Paris, our employees from the Southern European Business Unit based there decided to sponsor specific charities in the city, including Hopitaux de Paris, Pompiers, pupilles de l’état (firemen orphans). and OEuvre des orphelins de la préfecture de police (police orphans).
