RI in the Community

Local and international community support

Rentokil Initial supports a number of charities both locally and internationally. Our aim is to inspire people to support their colleagues, customers and suppliers in their own charitable efforts. This activity can often be to share time, skills and resources in their community programmes.

Some charities that we have recently supported include the Make a Wish Foundation (UK), Rainforest Rescue (Australia), The Zenzelini Trust (South Africa) and Save the Children (Europe). The company also supports Malaria No More and WaterAid work internationally.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme

COHEP stands for Community Orientated Health Education Programme and is a volunteer led activity which aims to educate people in local communities about the importance of personal and environmental hygiene in developing countries.

We encourage colleagues to volunteer to support this unique programme, whether they simply create a newsletter or deliver the training material in a school or orphanage. Hence Rentokil Initial is able make a real difference to children’s lives in parts of the developing world like India and South Africa.
