CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
As a socially responsible organization, EGI is conscious of appreciating the human capital and the environmental assets alike. It places great importance in giving back to the community and nature. As a first step to fulfilling this responsibility, we place great value on education. We foresee that a well-educated populace will foster a more sustainable society. With this in mind, 30% of all Karam Foods profits are entrusted (waqf) for education, to support scholarships and to educate underprivileged children, within the region and outside at a later stage. EGI puts great emphasis on transparent management of this initiative, to ensure that they reach the right people. Furthermore, the Chairman has made this a direction in his will for his successors to continue to honor this commitment to the deserving.
Furthermore, we have an eye on the environment and aim to preserve it by minimizing our carbon footprint for the benefit of future generations. To this end, the purpose-built EGI head office and Karam Foods factory use most efficient systems available while utilizing its energy requirements. We remain committed to a greener future by choosing sustainable products, materials, and energy.
At EGI, we foster this culture of unanimous belief in this corporate social responsibility. Every member of the organization conscientiously works to achieve these aims.
“WE MAY NOT LIVE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS, BUT THE PRODUCTS OF OUR CREATIVITY CAN LEAVE A LEGACY LONG AFTER WE ARE GONE.”
