At Cains, corporate social responsibility runs in tandem with our vision and values, not only as a professional advisory firm but also as an employer. Cains and its employees participate in many activities to support both the local and the international community. These activities range from supporting charitable foundations, volunteer work, pro-bono work and reducing our environmental impact.
Our commitment to the local community in the Isle of Man is embraced by the firm, both collectively and individually. Our lawyers and support staff are involved in many activities within the Isle of Man and collectively we support several charitable and local community schemes, including:
In November 2018 Cains hosted its inaugural charity reception evening. The evening, attended by Lieutenant Governor Sir Richard Gozney and his wife Lady Gozney, as well as local businesses and members of the community, was in aid of Mannin Sepsis and the RNLI and included drinks, canapes, a raffle and some fantastic auction prizes.
Members of Cains’ team take part annually in the Parish Walk, a unique endurance challenge where competitors have 24 hours to complete the 85 mile route which takes in all 17 of the island’s Parishes. Proceeds from this year’s sponsorship went to Mannin Sepsis.
In 2017 Cains sponsored the “Dedication to Sports Over 18” award at the Isle of Man Dream Catcher awards, a charity whose remit is to help bring dreams to life for local people in need or those less fortunate and whose charitable acts have touched on hundreds of lives in the Isle of Man.
We have found that we are able to use our legal skills to benefit our community by undertaking pro bono work across a diverse range of areas. Cains additionally positively engages local business and Government by dedicating time and experience to organisations such as the Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce and the Isle of Man Business Network.
Cains considers its impact on the environment locally and internationally and we actively seek new ways to improve our efficiency and reduce our environmental footprint. We look for innovative ways that we can recycle, reuse and reduce the products that we use. When selecting suppliers, consideration is given to any known issues relating to a supplier’s reputation for social responsibility.
