“It’s the right thing to do for the world.”
"Citizen of the World” (COTW) was established in 2006 as AllianceOne’s charitable initiative to help the
world’s most vulnerable infants and children meet basic survival needs and ultimately reach their individual potential.
Our multi-faceted commitment includes funding and sponsorship for abandoned baby shelters in developing countries, de-worming and other medical supply needs, food provisioning, computer donations to impoverished schools, clothing and toy donations, and victim transport funding. Citizen of the World includes a global crisis fund to aid disaster victims on an ad hoc basis and world-wide participation of AllianceOne charitable volunteers to support the initiative's goals.
Based on our affiliation with the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) through the membership of our Chairman and Founder, Daniel Julien, AllianceOne has pledged to raise a total of $5 million (USD) between 2007 and 2012 in cash and donations-in-kind. We are pleased to report that we have exceeded this commitment.
Our core objectives are to make AllianceOne charitable efforts systematic and participative for all AllianceOne people and entities; to unite in a worthy common cause compatible with local needs; to maximize giving levels and encourage our colleagues, clients and other audiences to join our significant humanitarian commitment; and to elevate the pride, loyalty and satisfaction of our people.
"It's our commitment to minimize negative environmental impacts by acting in a sustainable manner to ensure future generations have the ability to meet their own needs"
"Citizen of the Planet" (COTP) is a global corporate initiative aimed at ensuring AllianceOne operates in an environmentally friendly and responsible manner. In a combined effort we commit to help our planet by improving facilities to create “sustainable sites” (i.e water, paper & other waste reductions) and strive for “paperless” environments as well as recycling and incentivising energy & atmosphere Improvements. A key focus is to minimize our overall Carbon Footprint on a worldwide basis.
AllianceOne also invests in indoor environmental quality refinements, alternative transportation and employee education and involvement to extend green efforts to their homes and neighborhoods in addition to the work place.
Our core objectives are the reduction of power consumption, the reduction of paper and solid waste across, and the reduction of travel (air and local) across all our subsidiaries.
