Carib Cement demonstrates its commitment to foster relations with its stakeholders through investing in its Corporate Social Responsibility Programme. Over the years, we have implemented, contributed and assisted with numerous projects.
The company has always invested largely in Corporate Social Responsibility. “One of the many ways in which we have assisted persons from the community to get better opportunities is through training, which is paramount to our company. A significant training program was implemented when the kiln expansion program was commenced. This resulted in training of over 1000 persons from the community, in areas such as: steelwork; masonry; crane; and operations. The participants in this program received internationally recognized certification.
Caribbean Cement Company Limited believes in nation-building and continues to invest in and around surrounding communities through several programs. Our scholarship program assists children who would not have otherwise been able to afford their education. We have also invested in local schools, and have supports women’s entrepreneurship programs.
Carib Cement Invests in Sports
Once again, Carib Cement’s commitment to corporate social responsibility was highlighted with the inauguration of the newly refurbished and upgraded Donmair Sporting Complex last Thursday, August 17, by the Member of Parliament, Minister Karl Samuda, and General Manager Mr. Peter Donkersloot.
This community now boasts of having a world class facility as Carib’s investment resulted in the refurbishment of the football field, the netball/basketball court as well as repairs to the walls and fencing of the facility. The complex was also upgraded with viewing stands, bathrooms and a small office. As a result, the residents of the Common and Beverlydale communities are now well equipped to accommodate competing teams from other communities.
Members of the communities who were in attendance at the ceremony expressed their appreciation and gratitude by using the facilities as soon as the formalities were completed. Another sound investment by Carib Cement.
