We know that while a single person can make a difference, a community can change the world. We strive to leverage our employees’ individual strengths and passions to advance charitable causes we all care about.
We’ve built our sustainability efforts around six pillars we believe can uphold a better world. All are distinct and important; however, despite their differences, they all share a few key similarities. Our pillars universally address critical sustainability challenges, resonate with Gerent’s team and stakeholders, and present an immediate opportunity to improve lives all around the globe.
Access to clean water is an essential human right. Our team partners with nonprofits like charity: water to help bring clean, safe drinking water to people around the globe.
UNICEF works with over 190 countries and territories to save children's lives, defend their rights, and help them fulfill their potential from early childhood through adolescence. Our team supports nonprofit initiatives that promote policies and expand access to services that protect all children.
Like us, millions of species call Earth home — but too many lose their lives to climate change and human expansion every year. At Gerent, we recognize the value of Earth’s biodiversity and strive to safeguard nature by supporting environment and wildlife nonprofits.
This year, we planted nearly 1,000 trees to celebrate our 13th year anniversary. We’re proud to partner with OneTreePlanted.org, a non-profit organization that allows people around the world to plant trees at the cost of just $1 per tree. With so much deforestation occurring daily, we are committed to giving back to mother nature with the goal of planting 2,000 trees in 2021.
Natural disasters can wipe out generations of community growth in a matter of hours, leaving thousands without homes or hope. It’s our job as corporate neighbors to step up and provide immediate support by funding trusted humanitarian nonprofits.
At Gerent, we recognize that food is a basic necessity. Everyone should have access to healthy meals, and no person should ever go hungry because of financial challenges. We partner with nonprofits that help provide no-cost food to those who need it most.
As we navigate through the aftermath of a global pandemic, the importance of community health has never been more evident. Gerent recognizes this — which is why we regularly partner with causes that support mental and physical wellness.
Education is inherent to personal and community advancement — but too often, children lack the opportunities they need to build their skills and follow their dreams. At Gerent, we support and encourage nonprofit efforts to extend students’ access to high-quality education.
On the National Day of Service on January 16th, 2023, millions of people nationwide will honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by volunteering their time and energy to any number of worthy causes. But taking that first step towards making the world a better place can be profoundly intimidating. Where do you start? What does it mean to serve? How do we decide how we can give back?
In this episode of Sustainability @ Work, we’re sitting down with Gerent employees for four different reflections on what it means to serve and how our lived experiences can shape the ways we choose to give our time, energy, and effort to others.. From food and clothing drives to home repairs to comforting people in their time of need, we’re looking at real stories of doing good — and the impact that small gestures can have on those around us.
