SDO Social Investment
Social Investment is our voluntary contribution to Oman. It is embedded in the way we carry out our day-to-day business to provide long-term sustainable programmes.
At Shell Development Oman, We seek to initiate, establish and support programmes that are aligned with our business. Our social investment activities are themed around road safety, environment, enterprise, youth, development and employment.
Shell is committed to support the Government and the people of Oman through sustainable social investment initiatives from a desire to give back to a country that has been an integral part of the Group’s success over the years and from the Company’s recognition that they should be responsible corporate citizens of Oman.
