We believe that the companies that perform best over time are those that build a social purpose into their operations that is as important as their economic purpose.
Ever since our establishment in 1994, we have sought to inculcate responsible entrepreneurship into our fabric by engaging, even though in a relatively modest way, in making a contribution to the benefit of society and the community in which we operate.
Over the years we have developed a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy Framework which encompasses four specific areas namely Our Environment, Our People, Our Communities and Our Customers.
We are committed to do our best to help our communities be better places in which to live, work and grow. Through our Community Relations Programme we support worthwhile community and individual initiatives, in such areas as philanthropy, education, heritage, arts, culture and sports.
We are known to be committed to bring arts and culture to everyone. Every year we assist upcoming and established artists to share their talents with the general public through exhibitions, concerts and publications. During 2014 we co-sponsored the restoration of Mattia Preti’s St. Roque which is one of seven Mattia Preti paintings which adorn the Church of Sarria located a few metres away from our Head Office in Floriana.
Our company is a long standing benefactor of The Malta Community Chest Fund, Id-Dar tal-Providenza, Caritas Malta, Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti, Palazzo Falson, Teatru Manoel, The Malta Council for Culture and the Arts, Heritage Malta, BOV Joseph Calleja Foundation and The University of Malta amongst others.
We support healthy living and better lifestyles through campaigns and sponsorships of various initiatives aimed at creating greater awareness about the virtues of leading a healthy lifestyle. We consider sports as an essential element in enhancing one’s lifestyle and over the years we have offered our support to various sporting organizations such as basketball, bowling, athletics and football.
In the past we have also co-sponsored important health related initiatives such as the Gozo Melanoma Screening Project.
In the educational sector, between 2008 and 2014, together with MAPFRE Middlesea p.l.c., we were the founding and sole joint sponsors of Bachelor of Commerce and in the Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) with a major in Insurance and Finance offered by the Faculty of Economics, Management and Accountancy at the University of Malta. Through this six –year initiative we helped a number of students to graduate in insurance and who are now working in the insurance industry.
