AZAQ Corporate Social Responsibility | Qarir

We are committed to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives through Qarir that improve the well-being of individuals, groups and communities within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

We believe in doing things for the better and that Corporate Social Responsibility involves our continued commitment to behave ethically and work towards economic development, while improving the quality of life for our employees and their families. In this regard we are firm supporters of the national strategy to protect fairness and combat corruption.

Our signature social welfare projects focus on nutrition and education, offering benefits to local families that we hope go well beyond the programs. As part of the global environmental movement we encourage recycling within our organization.
