CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY.............................................................................

The spirit of volunteerism and community service in Ascott goes back a long way. One of Ascott's first corporate social initiatives kicked off in 1991 where the company helped spread the message of going green in Singapore's Ministry of Environment's Clean & Green Week.

Since then, Ascott has been building upon its commitment to create a better future for the communities in which it operates. The following are some of Ascott's recent contributions to the communities:

  • In Project 'Build to Read', 921 books were donated by the employees and residents of Ascott Makati in the Philippines. CapitaLand Hope Foundation will also be contributing an additional Php80 per book, all of which will go towards the refurbishment of the Mambog Elementary School's library.


  • Ascott presented books, water bottles and other gifts to over 400 students of Tan Hung A Primary School in the Soc Trang Province of Vietnam. Ascott will also sponsor the planting of 2 hectares of mangrove to combat soil erosion affecting the local community and global climate change.


  • Ascott Kuala Lumpur brought sunshine to the lives of disadvantaged children at the Yayasan Sunbeams Home in Malaysia by treating them to a fun-filled Hi5 concert at Genting City.


  • Leukaemia Research is the sole charity based in London, UK dedicated to the research and cure of blood disorders. Ascott Europe offered a complimentary stay at Citadines London Trafalgar Square as one of the prizes for the organisation's Christmas Raffle fundraiser.
