To achieve this, we support people, charities and the natural environment in communities where MUFG operates across EMEA that align with our focus pillars. Having seen the huge socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken time to reflect on the changing needs of our communities and have repositioned our CSR strategy so we can respond appropriately.
Working in partnership with charities, community groups and other companies, our CSR strategy for EMEA is made up of three pillars. Our employee CSR champions, mentors and other employee volunteers across the region are key drivers for our programme.
1. Young people
We focus on delivering employability, financial literacy and other life skills that help the next generation strive for a brighter future through gaining and sustaining employment.
2. Local causes
As a responsible organisation with a wide-reaching footprint we will expand our CSR focus and support a range of local causes through funding and employees sharing their skills. This pillar enables MUFG colleagues to identify issues in their local communities and directly support the people they affect.
In support of MUFG's broader ESG focus, we continue to help our employees create and maintain a more sustainable natural environment at MUFG and beyond.
Four objectives shape the investments and activities we undertake through our CSR programme in EMEA:
- Fulfil our strategic CSR commitments by optimising our efforts to best respond to the changing needs in communities across EMEA
- Engage MUFG employees across the region in volunteering and fundraising activities that utilise their time and expertise to maximise impact
- Increase the impact of our CSR programme through partnerships with charities, community groups and other companies
- Deliver measurable and sustainable impact and create a legacy that will outlast our CSR activities and funding
Giving hope to a community in Johannesburg
