Best for Geneva – Accuro’s Local Community contribution
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
Earlier this year, Accuro in Geneva announced its participation in “The Best for Geneva Challenge”, a program that brings together all Geneva businesses wishing to add more value to their jobs, strengthen the diverse Geneva communities and preserve a healthier environment. Accuro is determined to develop and improve its social and environmental practices and to drive positive change in its trust industry. It is in this context that Accuro offered to its employees time off to volunteer with FOUNDATION PARTAGE. The latter is a food bank that collects and sorts unsold stock from Geneva’s food stores in order to distribute them to associations and social services helping those in need in Geneva.
PARTAGE’s model is based on three pillars of sustainable development:
Social: they help those in a precarious situation and who fight hunger
Economical: they are committed to jobseekers through the provision of professional rehabilitation and support measures
Ecological: they reduce food waste and have a low environmental footprint
Accuro employees assisted PARTAGE during two half a day sessions in December to sort food and health care products collected during the “Samedi du Partage” held on the 24th of November (https://samedidupartage.ch/geneve/). The Accuro teams had a lot of fun in doing so too!
