Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability
The incorporation and establishment of GASCO in 1978 as a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), Shell, Total, and Partex, and the integration of ATHEER (a wholly owned ADNOC company) in 2001, has supported GASCO in realising its vision to be one of the most innovative, respected and caring companies in the gas and hydrocarbon industry. The core nature of our business is to continuously generate value through world-class management of our plants and distribution network, within the hydrocarbon value chain. These in turn promote growth and prosperity by providing the basic requirements that a modern society needs for development. Throughout many years of operation, we have focused on and taken proactive steps to address the challenges faced by ours business within the context of responsible citizenship.

GASCO aspires to be a socially responsible corporation and is wholly committed to sustainable development across all areas of our business.

Being a responsible citizen in today’s world brings increased challenges within the realms of climate change, green issues, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility-and these are set to climb ever higher on the agendas of modern businesses. Many debates have taken places on the benefits of incorporating these environmental aspects strategically across governments, businesses and consumers, with significant amounts of historical and scientific data proving that these issues cannot be ignored. GASCO, alongside its parent entity ADNOC, has been a front runner in the Middle East in proactively addressing these challenges.

The key driver behind implementing a sustainable, green and people orientated strategy is our commitment to meeting the expectations of our various stakeholders-employees and community, shareholders, regulatory bodies, and non governmental bodies.
