Corporate social responsibility
We want our people and society to benefit from our presence. Our projects and operations have the potential to benefit local communities by creating jobs, supporting development initiatives and providing opportunities for local suppliers.
We listen & we care!
We listen, respond and collaborate with our customers and the communities that we operate in. We’ve set up formal grievance channels and are using a variety of engagement techniques, from site visits, workshops and meetings to distributing literature.
Through our Customer Interaction Centre, we have implemented a structured process of registering, verifying and investigating feedback. Corrective actions are put into effect to ensure legitimate complaints are addressed and adverse effects mitigated as soon as possible.
We conduct regular surveys – Mystery Shoppers and Customer Interaction Calls - to capture customers’ expectations and priorities. Customer relationship at our service stations and convenience stores is developed and sustained through our sales managers
Supporting social development
Being the UAE’s largest fuel supplier to the community, we periodically assess its needs and expectations and try to provide more services to them. We also contribute to social investmentand community development programmes.
