Corporate Social Investment (CSI)
Corporate Social Investment (CSI) — also referred to as 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. In South Africa, this funding is very important and we cannot understate the invaluable impact it makes to our society.
Socio Economic Development (SED)
With the advent of the 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 in order to obtain a better scorecard.
FTFA has a 100% Black Beneficiary Base and is also a B-BBEE Level 1 company as measured on a specialised scorecard.
Below are all the 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.
