Being a Good Neighbour

We aim to be a good corporate citizen by serving the Aqaba region and supporting disadvantaged communities.

The Aqaba community is considered in every aspect of our operation. We invest in community development initiatives by enhancing educational systems and supporting the local economy.

Community Investment and Development

Supporting the local community is part of ACT’s corporate social responsibility and its commitment to making a positive impact on Aqaba. All of ACT’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes are undertaken in Aqaba and the surrounding villages so to maximize the relevance and local impact of the company’s support.

A formal committee manages CSR activities and evaluates the success and focus of each project to ensure that it aligns with company goals and objectives. ACT community activities provide meaningful support for young people and families through the provision of education, food, household items and activities. 

Impacting the Community

ACT has contributed more than 669,000 JOD towards community programmes over the last five years. In 2015, ACT contributed 150,000 JOD towards CSR initiatives. Furthermore, ACT employees contributed over 33,000 hours of volunteer time towards its CSR programmes over since 2010. 

Mitigating our Environmental Impact

We try hard to mitigate negative environmental impact caused by operations, and have a particular focus on marine biodiversity protection and resource optimization.

Our perspective

In the interests of the environmental and economic health of the local community, and sustainability of our organization, we see it as a duty to ensure that our environmental footprint is minimized within Aqaba, and addressed globally where we can.

Protecting our coral reefs

ACT has partnered with ASEZA to preserve our unique marine biodiversity, and have made an investment of JOD 1.3 million to aid the transplantation of coral from the berth expansion area to alternative areas where it can thrive again.
