Corporate Social Responsibility is a corporate culture whereby businesses or companies decide voluntarily to contribute to a better society and a cleaner environment.
At Calgro M3 we are shaping a responsible business in an ethical way every day. It’s how we make profits, not just how we spend them that counts. We generate direct and indirect economic value for local communities from our operations as we develop entire communities, not just properties. We believe that in supporting education, a meaningful difference can be made to change the wellbeing of South Africans!
Calgro M3’s investment in social initiatives is aligned to its philosophy of community development. We invest in social development initiatives that help uplift and empower. We favour the support of projects in our residential developments, identifying opportunities where we can make a tangible difference, supporting the growth and development of individuals, nurturing vulnerable or needy groups, or strengthening the community.
The Group is involved in the development of various crèches, clinics, parks and community centres within its developments. In all instances, Calgro M3’s investment in chosen initiatives is voluntary, not mandated. Town planning regulations for Integrated Developments stipulate that land must be reserved for public use and that developers may not raise any structures on or develop that land.
