Corporate Social Responsibility
At Pillsbury, corporate social responsibility is the conscious alliance of our business interests with the well-being of our people, communities and environment. It is understanding that good corporate citizenship is good business.
In 2007, Pillsbury decided to give greater support to these values, becoming one of the first U.S. firms to launch a formal Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative. With the help of a CSR director, we united our programs—diversity, pro bono and community outreach, and sustainability—under one umbrella to achieve greater synergy and expand our efforts.
At the foundation of our CSR programs are the core beliefs that:
- Diversity enhances our creativity and performance.
- We are honored to give back to our communities through volunteerism and pro bono legal service.
- The planet's resources should be used with care.
