Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the values and our mission to create a better life for communities. Our commitment to CSR demonstrates our support to improve social, economic and environment sustainability to the communities we work in, our clients, supply chain, employees, and other community partners. Breyer strives to be a committed and responsible business aiming to add value and provide a positive impact on the communities where we work, not only responding to contractual obligations but through our Community and Social Investment Place of Change projects we encourage each other to go above and beyond.
We aim to improve the lives and prospects of individuals and communities particularly those most affected by high levels of deprivation. We positively engage with individuals who are disproportionally disadvantaged in our communities:
