Star Refrigeration launches Community Involvement Programme

Star Refrigeration has reinforced its social credentials with the introduction of the Star Community Involvement Programme (SCIP), a formal corporate scheme which has been recently rolled out across the company to formalise its long-standing commitment to socially beneficial programmes and practices.

While Star has been dedicated to fulfilling its social responsibility obligations since it was first founded nearly 50 years ago, the introduction of the official programme is set to enhance opportunities for local development, revitalisation and growth by encouraging staff to invest and give back to the communities in which the company operates.

The Star Community Involvement Programme is aimed at supporting charitable efforts, educational initiatives and community development projects all over Britain. It was instigated by the company’s group managing director, Dr Andy Pearson, with the express purpose of encouraging and enabling departments within the organisation to give something back to their local community.

Dr Pearson said: “SCIP support can take the form of funding, resources or time dedicated towards furthering a good cause that is in some way connected to the department or branch itself. The programme is open to any branch, office or department as long as the lead applicant is both a Star employee and personally connected to the cause, with registered charities and established educational organisations preferred targets of support.”

To date, Star has contributed over £10,000 to good causes proposed by staff.
