NET4GAS employees handed gift certificates for animals in need and People in Need
NET4GAS, a member of our platform, targeted for a long-term contribution to the development of sites in its jurisdiction, including natural conservation and environmental protection, education, training and research, and community development. On 5th December, Employees at NET4GAS passed the gift certificates for animal in need charity and social integration programs at People in Need. Key standards to select the charity were whether they align with the overall social engagement strategy of NET4GAS, and with programs Closer to Nature and Closer to Knowledge.
„The Czech Union for Nature Conservation, which organizes the animals in need charity, is our long-term partner. We chose a charity that we have not yet supported within our partnership, especially to aid those hit by floods this year. People in Need has long been supporting a program for leisure-time involvement of employees – the Companius. We cooperate with the organization all the time, and they assure us that the donated funds are being used efficiently and effectively.“ Zuzana Kučerová, responsible for CSR programs in NET4GAS.
Animal in need charity aims to support financially for the entire national network of rescue stations – rescues injured wild animals and re-launch them into the nature – to take care of permanently disabled wild animals and to promote environmental education and natural conservation.
People in Need Social Integration Program is dedicated to solve poverty and social exclusion in the country. It offers direct support to families and individuals who find themselves in difficult circumstances and also initiates and supports systemic changes that lead to social inclusion and reduction of poverty levels.
