Toshiba KidsAt Toshiba, we understand that as a multi-national corporation we have a responsibility to our planet and the people who inhabit it. Promoting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a cornerstone of our business. We seek to contribute to the future of a sustainable planet by addressing global issues such as climate change and by carrying out various social contribution programs. Toshiba Group is aiming to become the world’s foremost eco-company by 2015 by increasing the eco-efficiency of our products, processes and services.

We are a proud partner of the Nature Conservancy of Canada and together we are dedicated to the conservation of biodiversity of ecosystems across Canada. We are also the National Notebook sponsor for the amazing Upopolis program which helps empower and keep connected kids and teens who are in hospitals. Toshiba, along with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), founded the ExploraVision Awards program over 20 years ago. ExploraVision is the world’s largest K-12 science and technology competition open to students from Canada and the United States. It encourages creative young minds to combine their imaginations with the tools of science and technology to create and explore a vision for the future.

Last year the Toshiba of Canada team raised over $20,000 during CSR month in support of local food banks and families in need, and Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy Relief. This year, we are raising funds for The Salvation Army’s Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief, the York Region Children’s Aid Society Holiday Heroes program and local food banks.

When GivingTuesday approached us for support it was a no-brainer for us given our commitment to society and the future. We share their passion for giving and belief that if we come together we can accomplish amazing things. The Holiday Season is an especially important time to support charities and non-profit organizations in their efforts to create awareness and make a difference. Toshiba is thrilled to be participating in the GivingTuesday movement!
