Dana Energy seeks not only to contribute to the social and economic growth of the local communities we operate in, but also their broader sustainability objectives. Understanding and addressing the needs of the local communities is critical to our long-term business success. Our approach to engaging with local communities and responsibly managing our socioeconomic impacts, whilst making valuable social investments, help us create and maintain productive relationships that are mutually beneficial. We support our communities through financial contributions, in-kind donations of goods and services, and volunteer projects. Moreover, Dana Energy makes significant efforts to promote local employment and economic growth along with improving a broader area of living conditions such as making investments in education and infrastructural facilities, providing water sanitation, access to health care, engaging and investing in philanthropic activities, responding to key needs raised by local stakeholders, as well as humanitarian assistance in times of crises which are underpinned by our commitment to powering the prosperity of nations.
Dana Energy designates employees to proactively and closely interact with local authorities and communities to identify and assess the opportunities for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities in agreement with our sustainability strategy and devotion to promoting local economic growth. More specifically, we identify and prioritize programmes to be executed in pursuit of positive socioeconomical impacts and prosperity enrichment.
Additionally, Dana Energy has made significant financial contributions in support of social and environmental aspects of sustainability to manifest our commitment to our communities. Some of these activities include, planting more than 500 trees, providing healthcare and medical aids, supplying clean water and sanitation, constructing troughs for fauna and roads for nomads and villagers, providing educational and social facilities with the necessary equipment, contributing in putting out wildland fires, as well as donating fire extinguisher equipment to local natural resources organizations, among responding to other particular concerns and needs raised by local communities. Lastly, as part of our dedication to Corporate Citizenship and a deep-rooted belief in fostering prosperity within our communities, Dana Energy seeks and engages in civic and social activities. For instance, we have been continuously funding the Iran Autism Association (IAA) with monthly financial contributions with the aim of supporting the less privileged families affected by autism.
