Global in scope, local in focus
H&T Labels seeks to respond to issues of global significance and to engage with local communities wherever we do business. Within the H&T Labels group, some subsidiaries are established foundations. In other countries, community activities are funded directly from corporate budgets. All H&T Labels subsidiaries are required to have a formal programme of social investment delivered through most appropriate structure.
H&T Labels supports the community involvement activities of subsidiaries in addition to funding selected global initiatives directly. It also provides expertise and disseminates best practice in social investment across the H&T Labels Group. Any additional funding to local foundations is at a level determined by the relevant Partnership.
Consistent, clear and accountable
We want potential community partners to know what they can expect from H&T Labels. H&T Labels follow a decision by its management, and local community programmes operated by H&T Label’s subsidiaries will adhere to this Policy and associates will be encouraged to apply it to their social investment activities.
