We support the following organisations. A commitment to socially responsible conduct, the consciousness of being an organic part of society, and the idea of corporate citizenship. Recent years have seen a surge in the relevance of this paradigm shift for SMEs and large corporations. Employees and the public at large no longer see companies merely as a legal entity, but as "citizens." Accordingly, they increasingly expect companies to make an active contribution to the successful functioning of the surrounding social structure and environment. This notion builds on the realization that companies require a healthy society to be commercially successful. By the same token, society needs healthy companies for economic reasons. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the umbrella term used to describe this new consciousness. Panorama Media Corp. began honouring these responsibilities in its business over the past years and continues to shoulder social and environmental responsibility as an element of our corporate culture. Examples:
- We produce the Friend in Harness magazine for the Guide Dog Association free of charge as part of our commitment to the important work of mobility, freedom and independence for visually-impaired people.
- We have implemented a policy of printing our magazines on environmental friendly paper and produced high-end magazines as early as 1995 on partly recycled paper printed and finished with the environment in mind.
- We have an internal policy of reducing paper consumption and using recycled paper for all administrative use. Hence our printers and photocopiers are stocked with recycled paper, despite the higher cost of the paper.
- Through our involvement with the National Horse Trust, the Highveld Horse Care Unit and the South African National Equestrian Federation, we support a number of horse-related charities.
