“The Borouge and Takreer HSE Campaign is in line with our both companies’ commitment to sustainability and world-class leadership in HSE practices,” said Alhajri in his opening speech. “The campaign reflects the value of cooperation and the significance of sustainability and social responsibility policies adopted by ADNOC and its Group of Companies.”
He pointed out that the well-being of people at Borouge and the community where the Company operates is embodied in its value of ‘Respect’. “Looking after ourselves and the environment is the most important thing that we do to ensure a safe and healthy life, and leave behind a better world for the generations to come.”
