At CAO, we take on social responsibility consciously, and are committed to operating responsibly and doing our part for the community to contribute meaningfully. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) and business strategies are tightly integrated, and through effective CSR outreach, the Group is invested in the global communities where we operate and endeavor to provide learning opportunities for children in need as well as support environment-related initiatives to create value and enable progress in society.
CAO’s approach to drive CSR initiatives is mainly through collaborative and strategic partnerships with government bodies, non-government organisations and community groups with sound track record in respective fields and is committed to fostering positive engagement through supporting charitable and social causes we believe in. For the past eight years, CAO has been involved with non-government organisations and community groups including Beyond Social Services’ pre-school facility – Healthy Start Child Development Centre (“HSCDC”), contributing and supporting educational initiatives for less privileged children from Singapore’s Bukit Merah and Redhill neighbourhood estates to make a difference in the local community.

As the Group’s business expand globally, we are also keenly conscious of our social responsibility to contribute to a sustainable world through supporting environmental sustainability efforts in the communities where we operate.
Over the years, CAO has actively supported green initiatives and contributed to environment conservation efforts with biodiversity preservation activities such as tree-planting at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, weeding and removing of wild creepers in the forested areas at Admiralty Park in Singapore and partnering with National Parks Board (“NParks”) of Singapore to develop a series of themed educational videos to create awareness of the rich biodiversity in urban Singapore.
CAO has a strong commitment to operate responsibly and holds itself accountable to be a socially and environmentally responsible company to ensure the healthy, sustainable and rapid growth of its core businesses. Moving into the next growth phase, the Group remains committed with a focus on sustainability and preserving environmental resources across its businesses to positively impact the global communities we operate in today.
