In 2012, Charles River launched One Day, a corporate social responsibility program that provides employees with a day to volunteer in the communities where they live and work. Since the program’s inception, employees have volunteered thousands of hours to charitable organizations across the globe.
Commitment to our communities: In 2015, Charles River employees globally participated in more than 3,200 volunteer opportunities in their local communities, volunteering more than 14,000 hours across approximately 430 volunteer events. In 2016, we aim to further increase employee participation in One Day as we strive to meet the greatest needs in our community.
Commitment to our planet: In 2015, Charles River expanded its team and funding to focus on energy conservation investments that will positively impact our planet today and lead to a better tomorrow.
