Community

Since 2010, MCI talents have raised over €7 million for 518 community projects around the world, investing 30,614 hours of their time and energy.

Our Approach: When People Come Together, Magic Happens

In 2017, MCI talents volunteered a total number of 6,317 hours, raising over21,846 direct and over €1.4 million indirect funds in support of 50 charity projects around the globe.

Each local sustainability team is responsible for engaging their office talents around an annual Sustainability Plan that includes community outreach actions. Our goal is that each staff member volunteers one full working day (equivalent to 8 hours) of their time per year.

Since starting our community action programme in 2008, we have set a goal of each talent contributing 8 hours of MCI time (or one full day) to community action activities. In 2017, we achieved an average of 3.68 hours of volunteering activities per talent, falling short of our 8 hour goal. Based on these results, in 2018 we will focus on better ways to manage our talent’s time to allow them to create more value for their local communities.

Our Focus

MCI Offices are encouraged, but not obliged, to consider the following three criteria when developing community projects: Building Community, Education and Fun.

Through our Talent Sustainability Survey, our staff expressed their preference to support projects that focus on:

  • Children and education
  • Nature and environmental protection
  • Health and wellbeing
