giving back Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reaches back to CBI’s earliest days and has shaped how we conduct business. Reflecting the principles and values exemplified by company founder Marvin Sands, our CSR efforts are focused on improving the health and well- being of the people and the environment at each of our business locations around the world. We believe our long-term success is tied directly to our ability to make a positive difference in our communities. Constellation Brands’ CSR platform rests on three pillars: Giving, Social Responsibility, and Sustainability. GIVING Constellation Brands has a unique opportunity to make a positive impact in the communities in which we operate through our culture of giving. There are three guiding principles: to establish respectful, mutually beneficial partnerships with community members, employees, government, and business partners to achieve our goals; to align giving in a way that leverages our financial, technological, and human resources in support of our communities; and to focus the company’s giving in three areas we believe positively affect quality of life: Healthcare, Education, and the Arts. SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY As a beverage alcohol industry leader, we take our commitment to promote safe and responsible drinking very seriously. We are involved in a number of initiatives that address the societal impact of the misuse of beverage alcohol, and we support a number of organizations around the world that promote responsible drinking. We are also committed to ensuring that all of our marketing and advertising reflects the industry’s highest standards and best practices. We abide by our Global Code of Responsible Practices for Beverage Alcohol Advertising and Marketing, and are an active participant in industry self-regulatory efforts to ensure appropriate marketing messages are directed at legal, drinking-age consumers. SUSTAINABILITY Constellation Brands acknowledges its environmental stewardship obligations, and looks for ways to minimize the organization’s worldwide environmental impact.
