When Philips Electricals moved from Croydon in 2004 they wanted to leave a legacy that would help the community in which they had operated for 35 years. The company believed that the local business community had a responsibility to work together for the benefit of Croydon‘s inhabitants, and so Croydon Commitment was founded.
Philips‘ idea was to make Croydon Commitment the channel through which businesses could collectively connect to the local community, and so increase the impact of their social investment.
Since then, we have helped businesses find exciting and meaningful projects that inspire their staff volunteers, support local people and improve the local environment. From educational workshops that help to develop a skilled local work force to environmental team challenges that keep Croydon the greenest borough in London, our groups of volunteers continue to make positive differences to Croydon.
