At RMB we believe that through good business we can create a better world. Business plays an integral part in society and is therefore key to finding and funding solutions to society’s economic, social and environmental challenges.
While some view Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiatives as a way to donate to society, we see a much bigger picture. CSI is just one avenue in which we are finding innovative ways to solve problems, creating sustainable opportunities and inspiring change in the societies in which we operate.
Being part of the FirstRand Group gives us the opportunity to leverage capabilities, expertise and offerings from all our subsidiaries through catalytic investments in education, training and skills development. We promote good citizenship beyond CSI, or 1% Net Profit After Tax, to grow opportunities for innovative partnerships beyond business as usual.
As an ethical corporate citizen we are committed to doing more. We believe in the power of partnerships. We work closely with government, the business community, philanthropists and society on a number of initiatives. We believe that the most successful approaches to making a difference are integrated initiatives where people and businesses collaborate, partner and engage for the greater good.
Today, more than ever, people and businesses in South Africa and across the world want to get involved in the communities businesses operate in.
