World Executives Digest | Pernod Ricard recently held its 7th Responsib’All Day, with its employees spending a day away from daily tasks to support their local communities through more than 100 initiatives worldwide.
From Paris through New York, to Sydney and the Philippines, 87 affiliates engaged in activities that contributed and benefited to their local community, which is one of the pillars of its Sustainability & Responsibility model.
Pernod Ricard’s corporate signature “Créateurs de Convivialité” promotes the art of sharing and openness to others as success only matters if it can benefit surrounding communities, which can be summed up as “Let’s live together, better”.
“Founders of all of our brands were pillars of their communities, and it’s a beautiful homage to see that 200, 300 years on, we still commit to contributing to our environment and helping the people around us. Convivialité is all about sharing and living together better: there is no sustainable success if it does not benefit everybody,” Alexandre Ricard, Chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard, said.
In addition, Pernod Ricard Philippines employees have volunteered in Habitat for Humanity Juan Build Program to build homes and upgrade living conditions for the underprivileged, donating 220 packs of five kg rice sacks at Bistekville 4 project site.
Company’s affiliates around the world had also come up with more than 103 exciting and original initiatives to support their local.
Apart from Responsib’ALL Day, Pernod Ricard Philippines is actively involved in supporting measures to promote responsible drinking, launching their Wise Drinking app and website wise-drinking.com. Also, all of its brands’ bottles imported to the Philippines have added a symbol warning about alcohol consumption during pregnancy.
