Social Responsibility

Apex and its employees are involved in a number of organizations, events, and projects that support community-building efforts in Egypt.  Apex has partnered with various NGO’s working in Egypt’s underprivileged communities to provide basic human needs and job training. Two of the organizations Apex has partnered with are Hands Along the Nile Development Services (HANDS) and Resala.

The support Apex provides is both financial and through employees volunteering their time, such as a recent visit to a Resala orphanage in Helwan to spend time with 30 boys while delivering clothes and food. Apex is also a proud sponsor and participant of Al Amal (Hope), a training program preparing Geology and Geophysical college students in Egypt to enter the oil and gas industry workforce.

 

In 2019, EOG invited the IOC’s to join efforts and become member in the CSR subcommittee to lead the community development initiatives within the oil and gas sector. Apex accepted the idea and started to implement successful initiatives: Blood Donation, Eid Wahda Initiative (One Hand Initiative) to support MOH during the pandemic COVID-19.

 

In 2022 Apex was involved in Aswan Disaster Relief Fund in collaboration with the Ministry of Petroleum through MOP CSR Committee. The project is being carried out in cooperation with the Aswan Governorate and the Orman Association.

 

A joint teamwork from the Ministry of Petroleum, national, and international companies in the petroleum sector had conducted a field visit to Khor Awada village which was affected by the floods in Aswan. The goal was to examine the current situation and study the needs of the village, and then a complete vision was developed that guarantees a decent life and sustainable development for the village families.

 

In line with the celebration of International Women’s Day, an event took place under the patronage & with the participation of Minister of Petroleum & Mineral Resources, Tarek El Molla to promote and encourage gender equality as well as highlighting the role of women in the industry.

 

Apex took the gesture to show appreciation for the essential role of women working with us (Apex/PetroFarah) during the past years and to express our belief that gender equality and women’s rights improvement are one of the main company goals.
