We’re proud to announce that Arcus Global has joined Pledge 1%, a global movement that encourages companies to give back to local and national social causes through an ongoing commitment of staff time, profits or products.
Arcus Global is joining over 12,000 companies around the world who have already committed to Pledge 1% to a charity of their choosing.
This forms part of a wider initiative at the company to enact positive change. We run a number of initiatives across our business, including team volunteer days, where we give all our employees two days each year to give their time and support to local communities. As well as our Grow Green with Us initiative to support our local authority partners to plant trees. Most recently we donated 100 saplings to North Lincolnshire Council, supporting their ambition to plant 172,000 trees – one for every person in North Lincolnshire.
Making a positive contribution towards the communities we work and live in is very important to us. 2020 tested us all in ways we have never seen before and last Christmas we donated £3000 to the Cambridge City food bank.
Nick Howes, CEO of Arcus Global comments: “I’m extremely proud that we have decided to make this pledge. Businesses have a responsibility to make a positive impact on the people and environment around them, and it’s one of our priorities as a company. We often encourage staff to give their time to help nurture their local communities, and we couldn’t be happier to support this scheme. We truly believe that if we each give a little, together we can make a bigger difference.”
Arcus Global is proud to join the Pledge 1% community and encourages other companies to take the pledge and leverage their business as a force for good.
Simon Collinson, Head of Public Sector for Salesforce adds: “It’s great to see that our partner, Arcus Global has committed to our 1% pledge. In these unprecedented times, the impact of our 1% pledge across our communities will be critical. As the Salesforce Public Sector partner community grows it’s really rewarding to see this flourishing”.
