Sustainable Responsible Business  

 

As a small business, Food Chain Intelligence believes in the “power of one” : the commitment that people around the world make with themselves and with society to create a better world, through individual acts of kindness and courage.

In this spirit, FCI has supported the following pledges from people in our social network:

-Raymundo Peñaloza's participation in the Blackmore's Sydney Running Festival on 19th September, 2010. Ray raised funds for Cancer Council Australia, a national non-government organisation that aims to reduce the impact of cancer, improve early etection and treatment and improve care for people affected by cancer.

-Carolyn Lee’s “Less is More” campaign. Carolyn combined her personal goal to reach a healthier lifestyle with her desire to help the Sunrise Children’s Villages by inviting others to give a financial donation to the SCV in support of her reaching her goal. The Villages are two orphanages in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh run by The Australia Cambodia Foundation.

-Silvia Estrada's Yoga Aid pledge. The Yoga Aid Challenge consisted in completing a 2 hour Yoga practice on Nov 15 2009. The charity I supported was Football United!, a not for profit organisation which assists refugee children, youth and their families whom have experienced extremely difficult life situations, in their transition into Australian society.

-Nick Smale’s participation in the London Marathon in April 26, 2009. Nick raised funds for Family Action, a UK organisation that offers pragmatic support to families in need.

These small contributions can make a huge difference to others by both providing extra incentive to the individual to reach their goal, and benefiting the chosen charity they have selected to fundraise for. Small businesses have a genuine role in championing corporate social responsibility within their financial possibilities.
