The Netherlands:
ENGIE E&P in the Netherlands support the Society of Petroleum Engineers and other sector related initiatives and CSR projects:

Since 2016 the Maritime Museum in Rotterdam exhibits the Offshore Experience. The exhibition is the first ever in the Netherlands about the offshore sector, and ENGIE E&P is one of the sponsors who made this happen. The offshore industry, Holland’s modern-day maritime prowess, yet at the same time unknown and unloved among the general public.

In this project, the Maritime Museum is not only providing a spectacular overview of the search for oil, gas and wind energy at sea, but also setting an innovative course in research, collection policy, education and funding.

The UK:
In the UK ENGIE E&P is committed to support future generations and education, we therefore support schools such as Harlaw Academy and St Peter's Primary School in Aberdeen.

Our partnership with Harlaw Academy, a secondary school close to our offices in Aberdeen, has included support for renovation works, sponsorship of pupils’ artwork, and a donation of IT equipment. The pupils created an amazing piece of artwork for our new Aberdeen office.

Algeria:
ENGIE E&P launched a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program in 2013 which was carried out with the support of local communities near Adrar, in the South-East of Algeria. The goal of each project within this program is to enable the inhabitants of the Ksour [fortified villages] to learn the techniques they need to improve their environment, living conditions and employment opportunities. On November 10, 2015: an organic water treatment station was inaugurated at M’Raguen (Adrar’s wilaya). This represents a reliable and sustainable solution that is easy to set up in order to deliver clean water to medium-sized oasis cities. The solution is 100% organic and operates by percolating water through a series of filter beds integrating reeds cultivated specifically for the facility. Able to be performed by local contractors, the facility is inexpensive and fast to build (8 months of construction) and easy to maintain. The station is now operational and treats waste water produced by a village of 800 residents. Purified water then serves to irrigate produce farms.

Egypt:
ENGIE E&P aims to be an actor of positive change for local populations in Egypt. ENGIE E&P is the main sponsor of a new day reception centre for street children in Alexandria, the only one of its kind in this metropolis where a large number of children living on the streets, left to their fate. ENGIE E&P supports CODEGAZ NGO and its partner Caritas Egypt to accommodate the children of Alexandria and build this center. The recent partnership with the Tawasol Charity Organisation for underprivileged residents of Cairo’s Istabl Antar area is another practical expression of this commitment, which led to the inauguration of the school’s clinic last summer. The agreement signed by ENGIE E&P and local charity NGO Tawasol, fulfils a dual mission in education and health: while its curriculum focuses on innovative vocational training techniques, it also features a clinic providing medical care to the area’s underprivileged students and residents. The community at large also benefits from access to healthcare through a free internal Ophthalmology and Orthopaedics clinic, and through awareness programmes against various common diseases.
