Our Approach to Corporate Social Responsibility
Accountability, teamwork, character, service excellence and personal growth are at the heart of everything we do at Maine Pointe. We are committed to building a company that is sustainable, not only financially, but also socially and environmentally. We reflect this commitment in the way we work with our employees, contractors and clients and in terms of how we contribute to the wider community and the world around us.
Our corporate social responsibility program highlights the work Maine Pointe already does and provides us with a framework for our future development to ensure that we continue to uphold our values and to do the right, honest and ethical thing at all times.
We pursue individual excellence and success, and strive to achieve a balance among health, family, spiritual and professional goals.
We are committed to conducting our business at the highest standard, providing a high level of service and customised solutions that exceed client expectations, whilst having a positive social and environmental impact across our global footprint.
We work alongside our clients to reduce the environmental impact of their business and build a better, more sustainable future. For example, we helped the aviation division of a large energy company to achieve a reduction in carbon emissions equivalent to 2,173 passenger vehicles being taken off the road.

Maine Pointe, along with our sponsors, has raised over $200,000 for this very deserving cause over the last 10 years and was a major sponsor of the event in 2015.
Divine Water– Founded three years ago by Maine Pointe's, Jim Mynaugh, Divine Water was created to provide access to safe, clean, reliable drinking water for communities that lack this most basic resource. The two water wells in Haiti and six in Uganda that the charity has already built will have a significant impact on the lives of adults and children for generations to come. Maine Pointe sponsored the provision of a new water well for the village of Bukoma in Uganda. Click here to read the full story.
