Social investment is a cornerstone of our philosophy. This led to the establishment of the Cadiz Foundation in 2004. The majority of our social investment activity takes place through the Foundation.
Cadiz is committed to investing a minimum of 1% of after-tax profits in community support annually. Since 2006 the group invested over R8 million in education and social upliftment projects.
Cadiz believes that responsible and caring corporate citizenship is a key component of true business leadership and recognises its responsibility as a corporate citizen towards its stakeholders and towards the communities within which it operates. Business has a responsibility to help meet the needs of society at large and an obligation to step forward and contribute time, energy and resources to better the world in which it operates, a strategy which will also determine its success within that world. As such, the Cadiz Foundation is committed to playing an active role in the development of a market democracy that is characterised by sustainable development.
Cadiz is committed to making a decisive, sustainable and positive impact on South Africa and to demonstrate, through its Foundation activities, how it lives up to its core values and meets its corporate objectives.
