Corporate Social Investment
Absa's Corporate Social Investment (CSI) is aimed at facilitating and creating platforms for contributing to nation-building by delivering on the Group’s mandate towards social upliftment while enhancing business relevance and sustainability.
Absa CSI is viewed as a business imperative and a contribution to Absa’s goals, to the country’s social, development and economic needs and to making a difference in the lives of the underprivileged.
Key to Absa’s CSI strategy are deliberate partnerships with government and reputable non-profit organisations whose development goals are aimed at viable, innovative and sustainable solutions in response to national and global priorities. Absa’s CSI projects are therefore aimed at addressing social and economic disparities and responding to government’s developmental priorities. Programmes are implemented within the following focus areas – Education; Health and Disability; Entrepreneurship; Environment as well as Heritage and Preservation. Projects are implemented in an integrated manner through the Absa Foundation, business units and Absa Executives.
