"Constellation Brands' commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility means lot to me, because it makes me feel so proud to know that I’m working for a company that is concerned about the society in which we live, the environment and efficient use of natural resources."
Joanna Pernick, coordinator, quality and winemaking (Canandaigua, New York)
"Coming from experience with not-for-profit organizations and now working in a for-profit company, it’s important to me that I can still engage with the corporate workplace in a deeply satisfying, humane way by continuing to support social justice issues."
Lynn Freida, manager, hospitality and community affairs (Victor, New York)
"I love how engaged our employees are with our giving back efforts like Employee Match Day and Nourishing Neighbors – and in return the impact we have on our communities. Hearing firsthand from teachers whose students come to school ready to learn because they are part of a local Blessings in a Backpack program funded by our Nourishing Neighbors initiative – that is why we give back."
Kelly Graves, senior director, applied technology (St. Helena, California)
"I touch energy, water, and other sustainability projects, all of which impact Constellation’s ability to exist in harmony with the natural resources upon which we depend. With increasing awareness from our customers and channel partners, justifying sustainability projects is becoming easier. If a project increases our company’s longevity and results in immediate and long-term cost savings, it rises to the top of the list for me!"
Marta Paras, assistant, wine tracking (Acampo, California)
"As an employee, our commitment to CSR programs is important to me because I was raised to believe in helping others within our community. I feel strongly that CSR priorities should be focused on the young and the elderly, our two most vulnerable populations."
