Agility's GCC SERVICES Receives CSR Award From Arab Organization for Social Responsibility

Agility's GCC SERVICES subsidiary has received the Golden Award of Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility from the Arab Organization for Social Responsibility.

GCC SERVICES was honored at the fourth annual awards ceremony, held recently in Dubai, for promoting Corporate Social Responsibility among local communities. The event recognizes public and private sector organizations for outstanding, proactive social responsibility efforts that have helped communities in the Arab world.

In bestowing the award, the Arab Organization for Social Responsibility cited GCC SERVICES' programs that offer certified training for local employees in places such as Darfur and Iraq, providing them with a globally recognized certificate as well as confidence and hope for a better future. In addition, the programs also hire local workers, utilize local suppliers, and create facilities that can be used by the community at the end of a project.

The Arab Organization for Social Responsibility selects recipients for the award on the basis of their efforts to advance fair labor standards, protect the environment, and improve local employment opportunities and training. All are key tenets of the UN Global Compact, to which GCC SERVICES is a signatory.

The UN Global Compact is a voluntary initiative that asks companies to embrace, support and enact a set of core values in the areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment and anti-corruption.

GCC SERVICES places great importance on achieving a positive socioeconomic impact on the communities where it operates. A subsidiary of Agility and part of its Infrastructure Group, GCC SERVICES' offerings include facilities management, construction, management and supply of camps for the oil and gas, mining, construction and infrastructure industries. It also provides services to the public sector and relief aid agencies.
