The ECOS Project: MPI’s and AVW-TELAV’s CSR Commitment
The pilot project of Events for Communities of Sustainability (ECOS)—a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program launched in Canada by the MPI Foundation, MPI Canada Chapters, and AVW-TELAV—was initiated last year as a framework to support sustainability in the communities where our members and partners live and do business. The project was based on the principles of People, Planet & Profit and focused on supporting community groups from one of the following sectors: Food, Water, Shelter and Education.
Last year, all of the national ECOS projects resulted in $79,000 worth of goods donated back to the community through different initiatives, and over 800 volunteer hours from our members to support the different events that took place.
For this year’s project, we hope to exceed those numbers by at least 20% or higher.
