Community Engagement – being a good neighbor

We believe in being generous and in contributing our time and financial support to the communities in which we operate. Of specific interest to us are initiatives focused on future generations, local culture and heritage, health and safety, the environment and humanitarian causes:

Investing In future generations
Investing in the future generation continues to be one of our top priorities when it comes to community giving. We embrace our role to raise awareness amongst the country’s youth on the importance of the oil and gas sector​ – the role it has played in the development of the UAE and its continued value going forward. Therefore, in addition to demonstrating our support for developing the educational and leadership skills of our youth through financial donations and support of community projects, we are also engaged in building close partnerships with a number of institutions, such as the Petroleum Institute and the Higher Colleges of Technologies amongst others.

Investing in the environment
Since 2009 we pledged AED 2.5 million to the Emirates Foundation in support of a variety of projects focused on energy conservation, and environmental education and awareness for the local Arab community. Our commitment has helped realize a number of worthy environmental initiatives addressing issues of energy conservation, environmental education and awareness raising within the local Arab community. We also regularly participate and sponsor environmental campaigns such as Earth Hour, Clean Arabian Campaign, or the World Future Energy Summit.

Investing in our heritage
At GASCO we take pride in our diverse cultural make up. We recognize the significant role that the vast expatriate workforce plays in helping to drive our nation forward. However, we are conscious that we do not want to lose our unique sense of culture, the characteristics of which make up who we are as a nation. Therefore, it is important to us to celebrate national events. Together with the community we observe UAE National Day, support local exhibitions, competitions and events such as ‘Shots from Al Gharbia’ photography exhibition, the Liwa Date Festival or one of the camel beauty contests – to name a few.

Investing in humanity
We focus a large degree of our corporate giving, time and money, on improving the opportunities for those in need. We partner with some worthy aid organizations such as the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation for Humanitarian Activities, the UAE Red Crescent Society, Zayed Higher Organization for Humanitarian Care and Special Needs, Emirates Foundation for Philanthropy, Future Center for Special Care - to name but a few.
