COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY – CAPITOL CARES
Philanthropy is an important part of who we are and what we do. Capitol Concierge is committed to giving back to the community through the donation of our time and financial resources through our philanthropy program, Capitol Cares.
Capitol Cares’ mission is to participate in community SERVICE for others to improve our communities, strengthen our organization through teamwork, and contribute to the greater good.
As part of our philanthropic commitment, our corporate office comes together with their families to support local canned food, clothing, Toys for Tots and back-to-school drives; and participates in the Cleanup Day and Challenge Day Special Olympics events at the James E. Duckworth School. Beyond these community service efforts, many of our employees have a strong personal commitment to community service that Capitol Cares supports. Our employees donate hundreds of hours to disaster relief support, Potomac Job Corps, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, soup kitchens, United Way, Homeless Walk, Volunteer Firefighting, American Red Cross blood drives, Neighborhood Watch Programs and many, many more.
CAPITOL’S ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY
Environmental stewardship and sustainability are essential elements of our culture and our vision for the company’s future. We understand that we have a direct impact on the well-being of our society and ecology. That is why we consider it our utmost corporate responsibility to protect the environment and take proactive steps to continually improve our environmentally friendly processes.
Our company is dedicated to being as green as possible. In fact, more than 75% of our service partners are certified “green” companies, and many of the properties we serve are LEED certified. To promote environmentally conscious decisions, we host Earth Day events at many of our properties. In our corporate offices, we have automated our systems to minimize the use of paper and we encourage our employees to use mass transit whenever possible.
