Our Sustainability Framework

Organising Our Approach

ACT’s sustainability framework articulates what sustainability means to ACT. It is a reflection of the company’s integrated approach to making ACT more sustainable and addresses the issues that matter most to ACT and its stakeholders. 

The framework consists of six pillars anchored to our vision of being a sustainable gateway to Jordan and the Levant region. Under each pillar, ACT has a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) that are clearly linked to the company’s strategic priorities and help measure ACT’s progress against each element of its sustainability strategy.

ACT’s sustainability management programme aims to integrate input from all stakeholders. ACT understands that open and transparent communication is paramount to continued positive relationships with its stakeholders.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

ACT is driven to deliver both business growth and positive social impact. We believe that caring for the wellbeing of the citizens in Aqaba and its surrounding communities is fundamental to the way we aspire to do business. We seek to advance the livelihoods of the thousands of people living in Aqaba and its surrounding areas, and are committed to achieving a balanced society where opportunities are available to all. Therefore, we partner with local communities to make meaningful contributions that create shared value and improve people’s quality of life. 

ACT’s broad portfolio of community investments directly support a number of UN SDGs, and continues to advance the achievement of the Jordan National Vision 2025. Our approach focuses on education, healthcare, caring for the environment, donations, sponsorships and community engagement. ACT’s CSR Committee manages the company’s CSR activities and evaluates the success of each project, ensuring alignment with ACT’s goals and objectives.

Strategic Community Investments

ACT’s CSR strategy focuses on three areas with the aim of having a greater impact in: education, well-being and the environment. ACT is heavily involved in the community, listening to locals, non-profit partners and employees. Our community activities are monitored and the results of the initiatives are measured. This allows us to set future plans on how to further improve our CSR programs and ensure a wider outreach.

  • Education -  As part of its education initiatives, ACT focuses on providing educational opportunities for underprivileged children with the aim of offering them a better future. ACT provides school supplies and financial assistance to cover school tuition fees.
  • Environment - We aim to protect the environment and preserve natural resources. We conduct awareness raising activities to emphasize the importance of protecting the environment.
  • Well-being - ACT commits to good corporate citizenship, engaging in activities and initiatives that support the less fortunate and improve the community’s well-being.
