Speaking at the occasion, Ms. Ambreen Shah, Vice President, Legal & Corporate Affairs reiterated CPHGC’s commitment to the local communities. She said that despite CPHGC being a young company as we recently went into commercial operations in August 2019, we have been doing CSR Projects from the first year we started the Plant construction and did as much as possible even though the Company was not in commercial operations and not earning. We believe that one should not wait for the perfect moment but do whatever is possible at all stages.
CSR and environment protection are both important to CPHGC. We came up with our community projects as per our assessment of what is required in that area based on our interactions with locals and the local Authorities.
We respect diversity and equality. We have Chinese, Pakistanis and a sizable number of women employees in our Company. Like Chairman Mao said, “Women hold up half the sky.” This is true and we ensure recruitments only on merit and competence and not on gender or nationality basis.
CPHGC has an active CSR program. Since 2016 the company has spent PKR 124 million on various sustainable CSR initiatives. These include the Floating Fishermen-Jetty at Allana Goth; the Clean Hub City program; training of local students and provided them with employment at the Plant; providing relief supplies to the flood affected people of District Lasbella and a school with The Citizen’s Foundation (TCF) in Gaddani area of Lasbella.
