Global CSR day
Grant Thornton network celebrates "Growing Together in the community" by holding an annual global event.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our CSR event could not be held in 2020.
For World Children's Day on 20 November 2019, Grant Thornton Luxembourg supported the Unicef’s #GoBlue campaign to highlight children rights at the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Grant Thornton illuminated its building in blue and our employees were wearing blue clothes to show our solidarity towards children's rights.
On 13 & 14 September 2018, Grant Thornton Luxembourg people spent two days renovating the premises at Caritas Luxembourg as part of the global CSR event. The renovation of the reception area was intended to make the visitor experience more pleasant and welcoming for its beneficiaries thanks to new equipment and a small catering area. On 24 September 2018, the inaugural ceremony of Caritas Luxembourg was held in the presence of Marie-Josée Jacobs, President of Caritas Luxembourg, and Romain Bontemps, Managing Partner of Grant Thornton Luxembourg.
On our annual global CSR day 2017 on 22 September 2017, Grant Thornton Luxembourg supported the local charity “Fondation Follereau” which is currently financing more than 35 development projects in nine countries in West Africa and Madagascar. Our collaborators discussed through several activities organised during the day about how we could help to protect children in distress and support maternal and child health in Africa.
On 22 September 2016, Grant Thornton Luxembourg organised a party for the children of the local association Elisabeth which takes care of children who are in difficult situations in Luxembourg by offering them a safe and secure environment to grow up. At this occasion, the children were invited to enjoy snacks and cakes prepared by our co-workers and to have fun playing games with our animators in our office in Hamm. Our firm had organised a collection of clothes, toys, and school material which was offered to the children.
As part of the global CSR day on 17 September 2015, Grant Thornton Luxembourg showed solidarity towards the refugees in the world by gathering in front of our future headquarters in Hamm (under construction at that time). We then made commitments to support the refugees and how we can make a difference.
