Corporate Social Investment

Putco has been playing a key role in uplifting and supporting the communities in which we operate for over 40 decades by focusing on corporate social responsibility projects. The company is working on sustainable programmes that will empower South Africans. 

Putco started investing in communities  in 1982, long before there were any incentives from Government.

The Putco Corporate Social Investment (CSI) Foundation has shifted its focus from donating money and seeks to complement government efforts in fighting poverty, improving the living conditions of the vulnerable and enhancing the skills base amongst the youth.

We partner with the community organizations to ensure that identified projects address the needs of communities and are aligned to government priorities and the integrated Development Plans (IDPs) of Municipalities.

The Foundation has has embarked on the following initiatives:
