Flight Centre Shines A Light On Corporate Social Responsibility

Is it any wonder that the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) was recently awarded the best Travel Agency Group at the 2018 National Travel Industry Awards. The award recognised the company’s commitment to delivering amazing travel experiences, right from initial daydreaming to arriving home ready to plan the next trip. Yet what we also love about Flight Centre is their can-do approach that is also embodied in their Corporate Social Impact and Engagement area. Their CSR is delivered through the Brighter Futures program – Building Brighter Futures, Where We Work, Live and Travel which harnesses the collective goodness of their people to drive initiatives that truly make a difference.    

Every July, Flight Centre hold their annual Global Gathering organised by their events arm cievents. This epic event brings together over 3500 of the company’s best and brightest staff from all over the world to celebrate the year’s success.

The celebrations included highlighting the Brighter Futures program, and RREPP was asked to create over 3500 custom branded Organic & Fairtrade Tees for all delegates and sponsors to wear throughout this event. T-shirts made from our unique and dedicated Organic & Fairtrade certified supply chain. From our organic cotton growers all the way through to the spinning and dyeing of the fabrics, to exact pantone colour matching, final garment production, printing, quality control and then delivery to Berlin in Germany, RREPP was there every step of the way, turning this great concept into reality.

The Flight Centre Foundation, FCTG’s philanthropic arm, also shined a light on an amazing charity called SolarBuddy, which is dedicated to educating and empowering the next generation to change the lives of children living in energy poverty.  FCTG staff have committed to building 10,000 SolarBuddy lights to be delivered to communities in Cambodia. To see the amazing work that SolarBuddy is achieving, visit their website solarbuddy.org or have a listen to Founder and CEO Simon Doble in this short video:   

Corporations, large and small, do have the ability to change the world by taking their CSR commitments seriously and putting words into ACTION. Big Business and other organisations such as Schools can help enterprises such as RREPP and SolarBuddy scale up, to create a much bigger impact and real social change. No one has ever made a difference in this world by being like everyone else, so we can only thank FCTG for putting their commitment to CSR at the forefront of the way that they do business - whilst also having a pretty good time along the way!
