Corporate social responsibility

The Moodie Report is committed to a policy of championing corporate social responsibility.

We believe that all businesses – big and small – should commit significant investment and efforts towards helping society’s underprivileged and to making the world a better place for all of its citizens, regardless of race, religion or economic status.

As a result of this policy The Moodie Report donates a significant percentage of profits to a variety of causes. Our particular focus is our official charity Hand in Hand for Haiti, the travel retail project to help the reconstruction of earthquake-ravaged Haiti, which resulted in the opening of a school in Saint Marc in October 2011, a school that, uniquely, will continue to be run and funded by the travel retail community. We also have a major commitment to supporting cancer-related charities.

In May 2012 the company unveiled The Moodie Report Foundation, a charitable institution dedicated to helping research into cancer and other illnesses.

The Foundation, a first for the travel retail media, is registered in Switzerland and maintain its offices at the headquarters of Moodie International S.A., parent company of The Moodie Report. The Foundation was conceptualised by Martin Moodie, who, with his fellow shareholders in Moodie International S.A., have provided substantial start-up funding from personal resources. A Board of Trustees includes Dubai Duty Free Executive Vice Chairman Colm McLoughlin.
