Corporate Social Responsibility
Our island, our ports, our responsibility
What is Corporate Social Responsibility
In simple terms, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) demonstrates a company’s sense of responsibility and commitment towards the community and environment in which it operates.
Why is CSR important to Ports of Jersey?
Ports of Jersey takes a central role in the community, economy and society of the Island providing lifeline services, including the movement of people and freight in and out of Jersey. In addition to this and delivering on our mission of enhancing Jersey, we also provide substantial community benefit to island residents through our management, internal resources and financial contribution.
We continue to deliver two of the Island’s largest community events; the Barclays Jersey Boat Show and, together with the Air Display organiser, the International Air Display.
CSR is not new to Ports of Jersey. Over the years we have implemented a number of initiatives, showing our commitment and support to the Island’s community. Some of these initiatives involve broadening the horizons of young islanders with educational visits; sponsorship of events across the Island (both financially and in kind); encouraging our staff to engage and get involved with local events and community initiatives and supporting charitable activities, particularly those of our chosen partners who provide important services to islanders.
As the organisation moves forward to a new way of working, this is our opportunity to showcase what we have achieved in the past, what we are currently committed to and significantly what we can achieve in the future.
