Our commitment to local communities begins with our employees. We listen to what they are passionate about and support their individual volunteer work and charitable efforts. Employees at Corby and Hiram Walker are among the 18,000 global employees of Pernod Ricard who are all united under the Group’s international goal of spreading conviviality around the world, as part of its S&R motto of “Good times from a Good Place”.
Each year, employees in 80+ countries join together for Responsib’All Day – a global day of action to locally support Pernod Ricard’s international commitments to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Business is stopped for the day and employees get out of the office for a day of volunteering to make the world around them a better place.
On Responsib’All Day in 2019, Corby brought together some of Canada’s finest bars and restaurants for a nation-wide, one night pop up experience devoted to the topics of sustainability and food waste. The event was part of Corby’s ongoing partnership with Trash Tiki, a passionate bartending duo that tours the world to raise awareness about food waste and create cocktails from materials destined for landfill.
On June 6, 2019, Corby’s employees across 8 different cities went to key local accounts and learned alongside bartenders how to make different cocktail ingredients that help fight the issue of food waste, heard from local community speakers on issues about sustainability, and were ultimately a part of making Canada’s first nation-wide sustainability pop-up a huge success!
