“We are pleased to support the Chamber’s Annual Earth Day Roadside Clean-Up initiative, and so proud of our members of staff and their families who step up each year to volunteer their time,” said Mark McIntyre, Managing Director of CIBC FirstCaribbean Cayman.  He added, “We look forward to this event every year, not only because we believe it is our corporate and social responsibility to keep our beautiful island clean but also because the event is a great team building effort for our bank family and of course an opportunity to socialise. We commend the Chamber of Commerce for promoting pride in our environment and encouraging the community to keep Cayman clean.”

“CIBC FirstCaribbean is an outstanding supporter of the Chamber’s Annual Roadside Clean Up as part of the island’s Earth Day activities,” said Wil Pineau, Chamber of Commerce CEO.  “This year’s group of 130 volunteers distinguished the firm as the largest single local participant in the campaign, and represented the third consecutive year that the organisation has achieved the highest total number of volunteers at the event.  This achievement demonstrates a remarkable level of corporate social responsibility in this community-based activity, and we thank CIBC FirstCaribbean for their continued support, and for leading by example.”
