Corporate Social Responsibility
At Kal Tire, we recognize our responsibility to our customers and community, to our environment and each other.
Corporate social responsibility cuts across all aspects of our operations. From our main administrative center in Canada to our mining sites around the world, we strive to meet the following social commitments:
We are committed to the protection of the environment through incorporating best practices throughout our operations.
We are committed to giving back locally by growing healthy and safe communities for families of our customers and team members.
We are committed to engaging team members in social responsibility initiatives and continuously looking for opportunities to strengthen the Kal Tire team.
These commitments are expressed in the seven guiding principles, known as the Aims, which are at the heart of Kal Tire culture. Moreover, we work collaboratively with our suppliers and government entities to contribute to the needs of the communities where we live and serve.
It is estimated that the combined efforts of our global operations support close to 300 different community organizations. Our values lie in promoting healthy, active lifestyles; championing safety awareness and education; and assisting youth and families in need. We are national partners with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada and have recently launched a new national youth program called Skilled4Success. The goal is to provide essential pre-employment exploration opportunities, job skills training, and job-shadowing experience in a Kal Tire store.
