Singapore Compact CSR Awards 2012
Shell Companies in Singapore has won Special Mention (Best Community Developer Award) at the Singapore Compact CSR Awards 2012.
An initiative by Global Compact Network Singapore (formerly known as Singapore Compact for Corporate Social Responsibility), the CSR Awards recognise organisations which have responsible business practice across the areas of environment, community and their people, and demonstrate working in partnership with stakeholders to achieve long-term sustainability of the business. The Special Mention (Best Community Developer Award) recognises Shell for its consistent approach to improving the community’s well-being and quality of life.
Shell aims to have a positive effect in the communities where we operate. We do this by working closely with our neighbours to create opportunities, and develop community programmes.
Through our social investment programmes, Shell Singapore works with the community and stakeholders on projects that address issues directly linked to our business. Our social investment framework consists of four main areas: Environment, Youth Enterprise, Education, Employee Participation and Road Safety.
