Community Engagement

Throughout our history, we have maintained a strong sense of community and have strived to be a good corporate citizen.

Our Commitment

Community engagement benefits our neighbors, resonates with employees on a personal level and allows us to operate with the trust and confidence of our neighbors. We are fortunate to have a workforce comprised of many individuals who are willing and able to contribute to this important  effort by offering their time and skills to have a positive impact on our communities.

Our Performance

In 2018, we donated more than $1.4 million to worthy causes around the world. This included Foundation disbursements of $853,000 and individual facility donations totaling $596,000. These fiscal contributions were over and above the numerous ways our employees found to give back to their communities through volunteerism and personal giving.

Aligning Giving with our Sustainability Strategy

One key area we focused on for community engagement during 2018 was the alignment of the Foundation’s giving with our overall sustainability objectives. We undertook this effort with the recognition that the Foundation plays a unique role in providing financial support to our communities around the globe while fostering long-term partnerships with organizations that can support our shared sustainability goals. To this end, the Foundation's Board of Directors conducted a thorough review of the themes supported by its charitable grants to ensure they complement the material topics underpinning our sustainability strategy. Looking forward, we intend to draw inspiration from our overarching sustainability objectives to help direct our community engagement activities at our facilities in addition to the Foundation’s giving decisions.

Inspirar a los jóvenes a enfrentar el cambio climático

Orgullosamente, la Fundación Cabot ha sido el primer patrocinador corporativo para el programa ClimaTeens de New England Aquarium. ’ También recibió el reconocimiento Community Service Award en 2016 de Youth Climate Action Network y en 2015, se le otorgó el premio Community Leadership Award de Greenovate Boston, una iniciativa que ha estado involucrando a los adolescentes en temas de cambio climático y conservación de los océanos desde 2013.

+ Más

Este programa anual de empoderamiento y educación para adolescentes atrae a unos 40 estudiantes adolescentes todos los años, quienes desean aprender más sobre estos temas importantes. Como parte del programa, los estudiantes diseñan proyectos para inspirar al público, en particular a sus compañeros, a tomar medidas para contribuir con un futuro más sustentable. En 2017, un grupo de empleados de Boston y Billerica de diferentes disciplinas asistieron a las presentaciones finales de los proyectos de los estudiantes para mostrar su apoyo  y ofrecer consejos sobre las opciones profesionales en los campos de ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas (STEM) a un grupo muy motivado de estudiantes, ansiosos por tener un impacto positivo. ’
