Social Responsibility

We are a leader in driving positive change in women’s lives. Our business strategies and social investment programs align to enlighten, educate, and empower women and girls. We strive to offer educational opportunities that guarantee powerful returns for generations to come. This fosters a legacy of caring for tomorrow’s leaders: our children.

In order to accomplish this, we have established a Tupperware Brands Fund and the W.H.O. Foundation.

Tupperware Brands Fund

The Tupperware Brands Fund helps ensure that resources are properly allocated and available so that our mission, to positively change the lives of women, girls, and their communities around the world, is met. We do this through partnerships with various organizations focused on helping individuals. In 2012, Tupperware Brands Corporation, through its individual markets, Sales Force, and Associates, was able to donate $6.5 million in product, cash, and cause related marketing to help various organizations. It is our belief that we must take care of people today to guarantee a bright tomorrow.

Youth Development through After School Programs

At Tupperware Brands, we believe that in order to ensure a better tomorrow, we must provide positive support and guidance to our children today. We support this belief through a key partnership with Boys and Girls Clubs of America. As well as support similar organizations found in our communities outside of the United States.

We have absolute belief and confidence in the work of these organizations. The work they do with the youth in our community works; they provide children with the extra support they need to gain the confidence to prosper and become successful adults.

Tupperware Brands’ Workplace Global Impact Awards

Tupperware Brands’ commitment to Global Social Responsibility lives in our markets and communities. This is where we build long-lasting relationships that leverage our resources and optimize our competencies. While we support a variety of organizations and initiatives that directly affect the communities where we live and work, we place special emphasis on issues that impact the future success and well-being of girls and women.

In support of this commitment, we have in place internal Global Impact Awards to recognize markets that embrace community engagement and social investments as integral parts of the success of their business. These awards also recognize the type of leadership that inspires Associates to understand the meaning and importance of being a global neighbor and a stakeholder in the social development of their communities.

The recipients of our internal 2012 Global Impact Awards are passionate advocates for meaningful social change, and vocal proponents for equality, opportunity and empowerment for women, children and families. Their heartfelt, hands-on personal participation in community programs inspire others to follow their lead. They are:
