As one of the world’s distinguished companies, ALFURQAN continues to adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards in all of its busi­ness activities across the globe. Our well-founded reputation for integrity and excellence is one of our biggest assets.

In September 2015, the United Nations adopted a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These global goals lay out a 15-year agenda to “mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, reduce inequality, and tackle climate change.” In for­mulating the SDGs, the U.N. acknowledged “the role of the diverse private sector, ranging from micro-enterprises to cooperatives to multination­als” in supporting the Goals. These goals have come a part of our business concept, thinking, and decision making.

The identified SDGs are mainly associated with:

  • The environmental impacts of our activities, such as the generation of renewable energy, the efficient management of resources such as water, waste, etc., and climate action (SDG 6, 7, 9, 12 and 13);
  • The commitment to quality education we have undertaken through the activities conducted with ALFURQAN in the communities where we have a presence (SDG 4);
  • The creation of and commitment to decent work, and the training and development of our employees, ensuring a safe and protected work environment (SDG 8); and
  • The search for alliances and partnerships with different initiatives and organizations to help us attain the 2030 Agenda Goals (SDG 17). 

ALFURQAN fully supports the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) which were developed by John Ruggie and his team in consultation with many stakeholder groups (often referred to as the “Ruggie Principles”).
