Though a powerhouse in the trading sector, Frost International is keenly aware of its role as a responsible corporate citizen. In this regard, the organisation has several tie-ups and partnerships with aid organisations and NGOs and has also setup a wind power facility for a greener, cleaner tomorrow.
Being born of an ages-old friendship, Frost International understands the importance of give and take in a relationship. We are aware that we exist in a living, breathing society and that it is extremely important to give back to the society we live and work in. Frost International is also committed to preserving the environment for future generations, regularly undertaking and supporting causes that help in making significant contributions.
Besides financial contributions to numerous charities, educational programs and institutions, and healthcare initiatives, Frost makes direct and significant contributions for the betterment of society in the city of Kanpur, which hosts its roots. Furthermore, the company has set up a Green Energy facility to generate power from the wind in Tamil Nadu.
Indo – Canadian Cancer Research Foundation (ICCRF)
Frost International Ltd. has entered into a long term alliance with Aidmatrix to support various social causes that the organisation works on. As its first endeavour with Aid Matrix, Frost is contributing towards the The Indo-Canadian Cancer Research Foundation (ICRRF). ICRRF was established in 2007 to create awareness about cancer amongst people, particularly young people around the world. Besides creating cancer awareness, the organisation also helps raise funds for supporting research for potential cures.
Besides Frost International, this endeavour is also supported by the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi and ‘YouWeCan’, an initiative of the Yuvraj Singh Foundation.
Jammu & Kashmir Relief Fund
Frost International is also in a partnership with Uday Foundation, one of India’s largest volunteer based non-governmental organisations, through which it volunteered in the J&K flood relief efforts.
Torrential rains had caused massive destruction and severe distress in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Several houses, especially in low lying areas, were damaged or entirely washed away. More than 2,500 major and minor roads were damaged, numerous footbridges washed away and more than 100 motorable bridges damaged. During this time there was massive need for immediate medication as a number of people were suffering from various waterborne diseases.
To aid support, Frost International provided medications to serve more than 500 people. This was spearheaded by Mr.Rahul Verma, Founder of Uday Foundation who made sure that the required medicines reach the most critical patients in no time.
Reducing the Carbon Footprint
Besides aid and charity, Frost International is also keen on leaving a clean and green earth for future generations. In pursuit of this goal, we have setup a wind power generation project in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, to promote sustainable development.
The 4.25 MW wind project is registered under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).The CDM allows emission-reduction projects in developing countries to earn certified emission reduction (CER) credits, each equivalent to one tonne of CO2. These CERs can be traded and sold, and used by industrialized countries to a meet a part of their emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. This mechanism stimulates sustainable development and emission reductions.
The Tamil Nadu project reduces 7,753 ton carbon dioxide emissions annually and is eligible to earn carbon credits from December 03, 2012. The emission reduction will assist global attempts to reduce global warming and avoid climate change.
