Dave Stangis, Vice President- Public Affairs and Corporate Responsibility, joined Campbell in 2008 and is responsible for the company’s overarching CSR, Sustainability & Community Affairs strategy, as well as the Campbell Soup Foundation. We were fortunate enough to interview him for our latest Camp Campbell virtual mentorship session (video below).
Here are some of the key takeaways about Campbell’s unique approach to CSR, according to Dave Stangis:
During orientation, new employees are told how they can leverage their unique skill set to support Corporate Social Responsibility— whether they’re in finance, marketing or a member of the culinary team. Campbell also offers employees an opportunity to volunteer in the community during the annual Make A Difference Week.
For example, board trainings are offered to educate about how to get involved in non-profit boards and the expectations associated with the role.
Campbell’s sustainability strategy has saved the company upwards of $60 million over the past few years alone by increasing the use of renewable energy and water conservation efforts.
As part of Campbell’s community efforts in their hometown of Camden, New Jersey, we developed an open source, collective impact framework that leverages physical activity, nutrition education and access to healthy foods to reduce hunger and childhood obesity. We continue to measure and refine this framework as we wish to replicate and share its successes with other communities and brands around the world.
