Corporate Social Responsibility
At First Citizens, sustainable growth and development are central to our story and we are committed to carrying this legacy forward. We understand the value of sound investment and this has been instrumental to our success. As such, we pride ourselves on investing in our communities to partner in success with the people we serve.
First Citizens is dedicated to empowering women and men to fulfill their potential unencumbered by issues of inequity. Gender equality has been a longstanding concern for the global community and our focus on gender as a CSR pillar has enabled the Group to develop socially impacting programmes under the umbrella of the First Citizens Foundation.
Our respect and admiration of the beauty of diversity is inherent. Being founded in a country with a rich and diverse cultural tapestry makes the cultural landscape of our communities unignorable. In the support of the arts and culture we seek to celebrate our shared experiences; pay tribute to those things that make us unique; and honour those that work tirelessly to record and reflect our stories in the way only creatives can.
We strive to build a positive and lasting legacy that proves us to be responsible corporate citizens. In so doing we are mindful of our impact on the environment and have invested both our financial and human resources in projects aimed at caring for our natural environment thereby caring for those in it.
Our annual First Citizens Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Awards (Trinidad and Tobago) remains one of the most prestigious award ceremonies in the area of sports in the nation. We have long valued the lessons of discipline and hard work learned through participation in sport. As a patron of sports, we are proud to support athletes on their journeys toward success.
