Close to the community
In 2016 alone, resources, investments and provisions set aside for local community support projects totalled nearly €600,000. Infrastructure for schools and hospitals, a commitment to local art and culture. Support for associations that provide assistance to the less fortunate, not just locally but across a swath of countries (from Africa to Asia and South America) where SACMI operates. This is the “social contract” as SACMI sees it: giving some of the business-generated value back to the community. A way of renewing the nine founding members' dream and putting it into daily practice: creating, through work, a better society that is more respectful of the environment and human relationships. A society where individual well-being only makes sense where created value is shared with the community.
