Securing the human existence
I view the potential and ability to influence as a privilege, a responsibility and an obligation. This sense of responsibility motivates me to act as a partner, with clearly defined intentions, goals and a sense of purpose, while caring for future generations.
We, at the Arison Group, invest in securing the human existence – our own and that of our children – by means of two channels: business and philanthropy.
I believe that through business, it is possible to influence and bring about change on a global level, regardless of political and geographical borders. In business, there are neither borders nor bureaucracy. There is only one aim: the economy. If the global economy is healthier, more stable and more prosperous, it will affect the quality of life of all of us. Therefore, I feel a responsibility and an obligation to do everything in my power to look towards the future with broad-ranging, long-term vision, towards a world where we can work together for the benefit of us all.
Our business activities at Arison Investments are designed to benefit Israel and the world.
Our operations are directed towards providing a response to universal human needs, from which we derive business potential as well as added value for human existence.
As a business entity that invests in and impacts all vital facets of life, we are developing management strategies that take a comprehensive, long-term view of all the aspects: economic, social and environmental.
The philanthropic activity of the Ted Arison Family Foundation is our way of sharing with others the gift of giving, while being mindful of the needs of the community. We view the ability to improve quality of life and to create a new and better reality as both a privilege and a responsibility. I believe that genuine, essential change can come about only when we truly understand that every single person is part of a larger picture in which each of us has a role, the ability to influence and the responsibility to do his or her share – because we are all one.
In all of our fields of activity, business and philanthropic, we strive to lead and to make a real difference. The three aspects – social, economic and environmental – guide us on our path, acting as a determining factor in our choice of investments and in the programs we support. As an organization and as individuals, through setting a personal example, we strive to secure the human existence on all levels – the personal, the interpersonal, the organizational, the group, the regional and the world.
We aspire to be an inspiration to an ever-widening circle of other businesses. Together, we and those who have joined us on our path will lead the change towards creating a better world, for ourselves and for future generations, in Israel and throughout the world.
