Corporate Social Responsibility

As we continue to grow, we are aware of the need to give back to the communities that we serve or where we live. ECODIT’s employees serve as members of the boards of non-profit organizations and provide volunteer community services. We also practice what we preach, incorporating environmental and social considerations in our day-to-day business decisions, with the goal of minimizing the firm’s environmental footprint.

Because we care, ECODIT will go the extra mile! We are strongly committed to leaving a lasting legacy beyond the life of project funding provided by our clients and donors. A compelling example of ECODIT’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) ethics is our continuing work with the Lebanon Mountain Trail Association (LMTA), which works to protect, maintain and promote the Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT). ECODIT is proud of having conceived, designed, and implemented the LMT, Lebanon’s first long-distance hiking trail, with funding provided by the American people through a Cooperative Agreement with USAID Lebanon (December 2005 – March 2008). Since USAID funding of the LMT project ended, ECODIT has provided thousands of hours of pro-bono expert advice and technical support to the LMTA, including coaching and mentoring of LMTA staff; assisting with networking efforts at national, regional and international levels; and providing technical assistance to proposal writing and events organizing.

ECODIT has also provided guidance on fundraising strategies, full sponsorship for revamping the LMT website, and – together with the Lebanon Ministry of Tourism – sponsorship for a hardcover picture book detailing the first-ever complete journey on the LMT: A Million Steps - Discovering the Lebanon Mountain Trail.

ECODIT will continue to seize opportunities to provide support to the LMTA and to other initiatives in which we are engaged around the world.
