Corporate social responsibilty

Giving back to our society is embedded in how we do business. Our passion for
involvement in the local community drives us to constantly seek new avenues for
generating CSR awareness and support. We strive to operate our business in a
more enlightened way, taking responsibility for our impact on society and the
environment. As part of the Marine industry we are committed to the protection
of marine life and habitat, however our aim is to also have an impact in our
community through: education, health and wellness, economic development
and environmental sustainability.

Corporate social responsibility drives many aspects of our activities, ultimately improving the lives of people within our community. SMG has a clear understanding of the global issues and aims to act as conscientiously as possible whether it is through recycling at the office, volunteering and offering financial support to the Rashid Pediatric Therapy Centre and also to the Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs, or involvement with the ‘Clean Up Arabia’ program, a yearly even taking place across the UAE to clean up dive sites and beaches. ‘Clean Up Arabia’ is part of the ‘Clean Up the World’ program promoted and managed by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). In addition to the above is our ongoing support and sponsorship to The Angel Appeal ‘The mission to Seafarers’.

Grandweld’s new shipyard facility was designed to reduce energy and water consumption by over 20% and 40% respectively. With CO2 emissions being reduced by around 100 tons annually, this led to the Leed Gold certificate. SMG’s carbon footprint will see further reductions with the inclusion of diesel electric propulsion systems in the vessel build program.

The projects we choose to support reflect our values. We are proud of the initiatives implemented within the group and of our staff’s continuing contribution.
