We are proud to implement our first CSR initiative at Amarenco Solar and it is great to work alongside The Cork Foundation. It is all about giving back to Cork communities and we want to empower other businesses in Cork City and County to get involved.”
CEO of the Cork Foundation, Pádraic Vallely said: “At the core of the Cork Foundation we are about Cork people helping Cork people – this has been epitomised by Amarenco providing us with our office space. With our offices now located on Anglesea Street, we are confident that with a strong base/foundations under us, it will spur us on to the next level. Amarenco have had incredible success in a relatively short period of time with their work in renewable energy, this gives us great hope for the possible effects of our partnership on the wider Cork Community”.
It is hoped that this partnership may inspire and encourage other business leaders in Cork to see the importance and benefits of giving back. Corporate Social Responsibility is a wonderful opportunity for brands to connect and invest in community around them.
