Corporate Social Investment (CSI)
Corporate Social Investment (CSI) — or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) — shows the world that as a company you think beyond just yourselves and your own self interest.
CSI funding normally goes towards charitable causes, non-profit organisations, and civil society groups. Especially in South Africa, this funding is very important. We cannot understate the invaluable impact it makes to our organisation and therefore our society.
Socio Economic Development (SED)
With the advent of B-BBEE codes, CSI is sometimes seen as interchangeable with Socio Economic Development (SED). There are many important causes out there, but often companies combine their CSI with black empowerment initiatives. This helps to obtain a better scorecard.
FTFA has a 100% Black Beneficiary Base. It is also a B-BBEE Level 1 company as measured on a specialised scorecard.
Below are our programmes and initiatives that fall under CSI and SED. We’ve grouped these into Food Security, Trees & Carbon, and Education so that you can focus on your internal goals.
