From Mumbai to Houston via Shanghai and London, our Charity Committees are the key link between Trafigura and the people who live and work in the countries where the company is active. The Trafigura Foundation encourages charitable initiatives led by the Committees, as our employees are the best ambassadors to diffuse philanthropy as a corporate value and practice.
Charity Committees meet regularly to organise and participate in fundraising activities for philanthropic organisations of their choice, which run programmes in their area. Charity Committees may also endorse a specific charity or programme in their country/region for consideration for funding by the Trafigura Foundation. The Foundation develops most of its projects in close cooperation with the Charity Committees, who are instrumental in encouraging a real interaction between Trafigura employees and the programmes we support. By being close to where the action is, employees can take part through in-kind contributions, skill-sharing, field visits, or raising awareness internally and organising events around the projects.
