CSR and volunteering

Supporting our local communities, making a difference on a global scale.

Supporting the world around us

As a responsible, global organisation PPDS works to take an active role in the world that surrounds our business – within our local and regional footprints, and in AV industry.

We aim to match our CSR efforts with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and specifically to those we have identified as areas in which we can make a real difference, including SDG 3 – Good health and wellbeing and SDG 4 – Quality education.

SDG 3 - Good health and wellbeing

Health and wellbeing with Mercy Ships

Mercy Ships deploys hospital ships to some of the poorest countries in the world, delivering vital, free healthcare to people in desperate need. Together with our sister organisations we are supporting Mercy Ships to advance healthcare in the developing world, providing LFDs, monitors, headphones and soundbars for their training centre in Africa. These training centres have a big impact.

SDG 4 - Quality education

Displays for community education

Leger des Heils, the Dutch arm of the Salvation Army, has around 110 community centre rooms, located to best reach more vulnerable residents. Initially working with five of the community centres, the local team at PPDS reviewed the work carried out for those specific communities and specified displays that would best suit the support given to them. A fleet of Philips professional displays – including Android-powered, Wifi enabled, large format D-Lines and education-focused T-Line interactive displays – was donated and installed, together with brackets and trolleys donated by their partner organisation, Vögels.

SDG 3 - Good health and wellbeing

Vision for the Eye Care Foundation

Globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment. Nearly 90% of the world’s blind or visually-impaired population lives in low-income countries.

The Eye Care Foundation is an international charity completely focused on helping those for whom good medical care is inaccessible or unaffordable to prevent and cure avoidable blindness and visual impairment.

At PPDS, we are proud to support Eye Care Foundation in multiple activities around the world, to help people in developing countries to avoid preventable blindness and visual impairments, while striving to ensure the most comfortable and easy-on-the-eyes user experience ever to their users.

PPDS people - making a difference

The energy our PPDS people give to making a difference, dedicating time, products and solutions for those in the AV community - those on our doorsteps, and further afield - is a source of great pride for us. Individually we make a difference, together we build a better future.

Volunteering PPDS people

We are always looking for new ways to make a difference in our AV community and beyond and our PPDS people are encouraged to volunteer for the causes they hold dear.

For instance, each year, together with our PPDS GPA partner, Airwave International, our UK team takes part in an endurance trek 26 mile walk, raising much needed funds for local children's hospice, the Chestnut Tree House.
