Borealis, a leading provider of innovative solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers, has announced it will continue its successful partnership with the Emirates Foundation and presented AED 1 million to the organisation by means of the Borealis Social Fund. Launched in 2008, the fund is dedicated to enhancing the social welfare of the communities in which Borealis operates.

This continued support comes as part of an agreement signed today by Mohanna Al Muhairi, Chief Operations Officer at the Emirates Foundation and Mark Garrett, Borealis Chief Executive Officer in the presence of H.E. Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi's Transport Department and Managing Director of Emirates Foundation and Clare Woodcraft-Scott, Chief Executive Officer of Emirates Foundation.

Founded in 2005 as an independent philanthropic organisation by the Government of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the Emirates Foundation seeks to improve the welfare of UAE youth. Working with partners from both public and private sectors, the Foundation has developed a variety of programmes and special projects for young people, which aim to promote social inclusion, community engagement, leadership and empowerment.

“We are convinced that allowing young people to give back to their community in a structured way helps make them more productive citizens,” explains Clare Woodcraft-Scott, Chief Executive Officer of Emirates Foundation. “Thanks to the generous support provided by Borealis, we can continue to implement programmes that positively impact young people’s lives in the long term.”

“A healthy environment and stable society are the prerequisites for developing a successful business,” says Mark Garrett, Borealis Chief Executive. “By means of the Social Fund we can give something back to the communities in which we operate. Our partnership with important national institutions such as the Emirates Foundation helps to ensure that young people share our passion for knowledge and education and be encouraged to become active members of their communities”.

Mohanna Al Muhairi, Chief Operations Officer at the Emirates Foundation said: The continued partnership with Borealis is a unique model which demonstrates the tangible impact that the private sector can provide and the untapped opportunities that must be captured and scaled up. We look forward to working with Borealis again this year and taking our partnership to the next level of engagement through the acquisition of best international practices, business skills and operations.”

By way of its Borealis Social Fund, the company has provided regular support for a range of humanitarian and educational organisations in the UAE such as the Emirates National Schools, the UAE Disabled Sports Federation, the Red Crescent, the Zayed Higher Organisation for Humanitarian Care, the Family Development Foundation, and other select charities.
