With a strong sustainability plan in place, TASNEEF will use CSR to encourage best practice and strengthen the UAE 2021 vision of excellence in both public and private sectors.
TASNEEF in cooperation with the joint venture TASNEEF Business Assurance, has started to implement a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) system, in line with its strategic plans and CSR objectives, by various activities that contribute to key areas in the workplace, marketplace, economy, create social return, the community and improve environment.
TASNEEF first gained recognition for its CSR with the launch of the “Maritime Emiratization Index”, which was one of the main initiatives of the Abu Dhabi Maritime Youth Summit for Empowering Emirati Youth Leaders in the Maritime Domain. The index aims to create an impact by encouraging national institutions and companies to hire Emiratis in the maritime sector.
Eng.Rashed Al-Hebsi, CEO of TASNEEF said, “Adopting strategic CSR will help us excel in our industry. We have started integrating awareness of social and environmental concerns into business operations and client interactions. We will also ensure excellence in our CSR and sustainability activities, and will consolidate our efforts to strengthen the UAE 2021 vision to be a center of excellence in both public and private sectors."
Mr. Khalfan Saeed Al Saadi, General Manager of TASNEEF Business Assurance, added, “By using partnerships we are closely looking at our practices that affect the workplace, the market place, the environment and the community. Our employee wellbeing and community engagement are all part of our overall sustainability plan. Along with the way we conduct business, our company’s shared values are Assurance, Objectivity, Insight and Innovation, and this is why we consider ourselves active corporate citizens.”
TASNEEF Business Assurance is fully committed to environmental protection through a set of standards for production guarantees, response to our stakeholder, products safety, sustainability growth and creation of skill workers. Al Saadi says, “Our vision is to generate enriched value to our stakeholders and better the quality of life. We aim to deliver the best outcome for the community and for our business.”
Al Hebsi emphasized the UAE’s potential to become a leader in CSR and sustainability. “Our country’s main organizations are no longer driven by the profit motive, but instead seek to make a positive social contribution by framing CSR policies and strategies. Accordingly, we will continue to maintain a healthy work environment and implement initiatives that meet our business needs in the most efficient and effective manner.”
