Andgo’s Social Responsibility Plan outlines our commitments to the community and the environment. We apply a "learning-by-doing" approach where we deepen our knowledge and impact through experience. Our commitments are focused on fostering healthy communities and supporting environmental initiatives.

How We Got Here
Andgo takes to social media
Like the rest of the world, Andgo found itself supporting a stream of causes through social media.
Posting is not enough
We recognized that being reactive to these causes and posting about them on social media only scratched the surface of making meaningful change.
Decisions for positive change
We wanted to go deeper. We wanted our actions and efforts to positively effect change for the things we care about at Andgo. In short, we wanted to make a real difference.
Formed a Social Responsibility Committee
We formed a social responsibility committee to prioritize our commitments and develop a plan.
Formalized plans in place
At the end of 2020, we had a plan in place. Starting in 2021, the plan was ready to be put in motion.
Focused effort and results
2021 marked the first year of our extensive commitment to this plan and it was a huge success! Check out our results: See our 2021 Year in Review.
Continued & deliberate action
We are just getting started with our commitment to social responsibility initiatives. We are dedicated to continuing to be deliberate in our actions at Andgo to make our communities a better place.
Andgo is open to working with other vendors who prioritize social responsibility.
