Nurturing Prosperous Communities
In line with our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact principles of responsible business and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we have developed a comprehensive corporate social responsibility (CSR) framework to deliver meaningful impact for our communities.
Our CSR framework spans five pillars: Health, Volunteering, Philanthropy, Education and Environment. Their purpose is to deliver a wide range of benefits that improve our communities’ health, wealth, life chances, and environment.
Sustainability & CSR Frameworks
Our CSR strategy is aligned with local, regional, and global priorities, including United Nations Sustainable Development goals (UN SGDs).
ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility
Global Reporting Initiative

We are proud that our efforts under these five pillars have been recognised externally for delivering the highest standards of sustainability and ethical business practices. In 2020, we became the first-ever company in the Middle East to be awarded Gold Accreditation for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) from the UK-based CSR Accreditation (CSRA).
