We think globally, and act locally. Core to the WEX mission is acting as an engaged and responsible corporate citizen.
In the global WEX family, 'social responsibility' is more than a phrase; it is a way of living, embodied in our history of giving back.
We offer our time, money and expertise to worthy organisations in all of the areas where we operate. We believe it is our obligation as good business people, and as humans, to pay attention to our workplace, our community, our future, and our planet.
The Giving Back Committee is responsible for WEX's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts – activities that positively impacts and promotes the welfare of the community.
WEX's CSR efforts include not only generous donations to good causes, but also activities, which allow employees to get involved and play their part in giving back.
