ProClass and Corporate social responsibility (CSR)
As a Dutch company, ProClass has a specific view on Corporate Social Responsibility, a vision that instills practicality. CSR is a broad and comprehensive theme and only a paperless workflow does not mean a company can be seen as a CSR pioneer. But ProClass does a lot more.
ProClass owns 21 solar panels to generate renewable energy. In an organization where electricity is used nearly 24/7, generating power on our own is also an economic opportunity.
ProClass supports organisations such as ‘Kiva’ which is using micro financing to help people in developing countries setting up a small business. Kiva Micro Funds is a non-profit organisation to which people can lend money through Kiva’s 191 microfinance partners using the internet. For more information about Kiva, visit www.kiva.org.
ProClass is the main sponsor of the Dordrecht Lions Ice Hockey Team for some time now. The teams are competing under the name ‘ProClass Lions. Nowadays, the ProClass Lions are playing in the Dutch ice hockey ‘promotion division’ and several youth teams are competing in the U17, U14, U12, U10 and U8 (cubs and mini’s). Also, various recreational ProClass Lions teams are playing the game now and the Lions association has a very successful and busy hockey school at which, on average, between 35 and 45 children are attending.
