CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY 

We are living in a fast-paced and labor-driven world.  In the face of capitalism, automation, and globalization, people are more materialistic, individualistic and competitive.  Work and earning for a living have taken up so much of our time.  With these circumstances, it is easy to take for granted the community we live in.  People simply do not have the time and energy for anything else.   

But is this really the case?  Has society become so calloused that humans can turn a deaf ear to cries for help?  Is it all just about the money?  If we cannot accept this case, how then do we encourage others to give a part of themselves for what we call the common good?  How can we reach out to others and gain a sense of community?  How can we participate and be involved as responsible citizens of our society aside from the taxes that we pay and those actions mandated by our laws?  We can bridge that gap through CSR.  We do not have to take the people away from their work, but their work can actually be their contribution in making this planet a better place to live in.   Through CSR, people in the business sector can still have a grasp of what the community needs. 

We here at Cancana Resources Corporation make sure that we do our part in taking care of the community members in the regions where we operate. We do not just go to one place and exhaust all their natural resources. As a responsible company, we make sure there is sustainability for the environment and the livelihood of the people. We are accountable to the people first and foremost. That is why we make sure to employ locals and come up with programs and services that would benefit them and their environment.
