Bapco launches biggest CSR initiative
Manama, December 19, 2012
Bahrain Petroleum Company, Bapco, has launched its biggest nation-wide corporate social responsibility initiative which will reach out to nine different local charities and societies across various disciplines.
The initiative, which is in line with Bapco’s strategy to provide support to local institutions and make a positive difference to the well-being of citizens of Bahrain, includes Bahrain Diabetes Society, Bahrain Mobility International and Bahrain Down Syndrome Society.
“As a homegrown, Bahraini company, Bapco believes in actively contributing to the development of the local community, while reaching out to a wider segment of the society,” said Adel Khalil Al Moayyed, chairman of Bapco’s board. “This CSR initiative is one of many community lead programmes by Bapco which aim to support and sponsor local activities of humanitarian nature, improving the quality of life for those in need, and contributing towards the country’s sustainable development.”
The company has reached out to different charities to understand their needs and how to best help fulfill them through providing them with medical supplies, computers, or facility renovation, a statement from Bapco said.
As a national economic figurehead and leading employer, Bapco has a unique responsibility to care for the communities in which it operates. Nowhere was this entrenched commitment to community engagement better illustrated than in several outreach initiatives, social projects, educational schemes and business events the Company spearheaded in the year to improve the lives of citizens, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
