ADIB recognised for CSR initiatives from United Nations Global Compact subsidiary
ADIB has been awarded for its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and support of the local community from the regional CSR Network Consultancy, a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) initiative.
As a people-focused bank, ADIB is committed to developing and launching new initiatives which can make a real difference to society. We are a advocate of youth financial education, seeing it as the best way to help them develop sound financial practices and contribute to the future stability of the national economy. Additionally, in alignment with the Year of Giving, we have further enhanced our CSR activities with the bank supporting numerous causes across the UAE and employees across ADIB giving up their time to serve their local communities. Such charitable principles represent the pillars which support the bank's business objectives, and CSR will remain a core focus for us in future.
ADIB has a proven track record of CSR initiatives including launching blood donation campaigns, sponsoring mass weddings and organising a range of activities during Ramadan, which ADIB staff also participated in.
ADIB also maintained its commitment to recruit, develop and promote local talent through its youth development program, visiting campuses across the country and funding programs such as the cricket National School League and UAE football league. Agreements were signed with different universities and colleges, including: The American University of Dubai; EIBFS; Al Hosn University; Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT); and Abu Dhabi University, to sponsor students and participate in the development of academic programs, with the intention of increasing employment opportunities for UAE Nationals within the Islamic finance sector.
