As part of its Business Plan, TICO is committed to an effective Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy that engages all employees.

Our goal is to integrate meaningful social, environmental and philanthropic considerations into TICO’s business practices and strategic direction and foster a culture of sustainability.

To achieve that goal, TICO participates in and partners with philanthropic activities and organizations, in our local community and around the world.  

TICO’s CSR Committee is a group of employees who have volunteered to organize and lead the organization’s volunteering and fundraising efforts. At TICO, we believe that together we can make a difference.

BAHAMAS RELIEF EFFORT

TICO has made a $1,200 donation to GlobalMedic, a Toronto-based charity, in support of Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas. GlobalMedic provides short-term, rapid response in the wake of disasters and crisis, both at home and abroad.

“As a member of the tourism community, and with close ties to Grand Bahama within our own organization, our hearts go out to the people of the Bahamas and the catastrophic effects left by Hurricane Dorian,” said Richard Smart, TICO’s Presidents and CEO. “We hope that our contribution helps support the people of the Bahamas as they begin the journey of rebuilding.”
