As part of our commitment to transparency we will continue to disclose these updates on an annual basis to ensure that we are sharing the most accurate and current information on our investments in this area.
Below is a summary of our disclosure for this reporting period from January 1, 2017-December 31, 2017:
- Invested $400,000 in health and well-being related partnerships, all of which supported our long-term commitment to ParticipACTION
- $27,500 for academic industry partnerships
In 2016 we began to apply new guiding principles to help define how we will provide financial support for well-being related scientific research and partnerships. As expected, these financial arrangements have declined following the implementation of these guiding principles though we remain committed to regular annual disclosure of all relevant funding.
By working together, we believe business, government and health organizations can pursue solutions to support stronger, healthier communities. We remain committed to that goal.
