October 2, 2017 - Beirut, Lebanon
As part of ITG’s CSR Program for the UNGC, and our aim to diversify our activities to tackle as many issues in the society as possible, ITG organized an activity in which we involved our workforce to visit the elders at the Maronite Nursing Home, Furn El Chebbak.
A group of employees, who represent ITG’s affiliates spent time with the elders at the nursing home, to uplift their morale while sharing with them homemade sweets. ITG wanted to appreciate the contributions that seniors have done to the society on the International Day of the Elderly, which was on October 1st, while offering a kind donation.
As ITG stands with the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the activity in which ITG’s employees have participated follows the first principle in the area of Human rights. ITG aims to involve its employees in the society and raise awareness on the importance of giving care to the elders that are left alone in nursing homes. Principle 1 states that “businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights”. Clearly, a growing moral imperative and human rights record within the culture of ITG improves our business performance.
