Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL)’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme dates back to the start of PPL’s commercial operations in Sui in the 1950s when the company established a school for children of workers and local communities. Since then, CSR has been the centrepiece of PPL’s corporate ethos.
In 2001, the PPL Welfare Trust (PPLWT) was founded to provide geographic and thematic diversity to the company’s CSR programme, which includes education, health, infrastructure development, socio-economic uplift of disadvantaged communities, particularly those living in and around its operating areas, and post-disaster rehabilitation.
Need analysis, scoping, planning and execution of CSR projects is carried out through strategic local partnerships. To ensure swift delivery, maximum on-ground impact and sustainability of its social investments, all interventions occur after due consultation and mutual agreement with stakeholders, including community representatives, local governments and non-governmental organizations.
To further strengthen PPL’s CSR portfolio and access the underserved in non-operational urban areas, the company has initiated Corporate Donations Programme in 2016-2017.
As one of the leading corporate providers of social development and welfare services in some of the most remote swathes of the country, PPL has received Pakistan Corporate Philanthropy Award for 14 consecutive years from 2004 to 2017.
