Community and Society
We strive to create positive economic and social impacts in the communities where we operate.
Keppel strives to operate in a socially responsible manner that generates economic and social capital, creating long-term, holistic value for the communities in which we operate. We engage and nurture communities wherever we are, with the aim of achieving a sustainable future together.
In partnership with organisations that share our values, we commit up to 1% of the Group’s annual net profits to worthy social causes. Such causes fall into the broad categories of education, industry advancement, arts and sports, care for the underprivileged, community development projects, environmental initiatives and healthcare or medical initiatives.
