In 2016, EGYTRANS implemented several projects and initiatives within its social responsibility as follows:

1. UN Global Compact

EGYTRANS focused its activities within its social responsibility on four main areas, namely, human rights, labor standards, environment, and fighting corruption according to the standards of UN Global Compact that EGYTRANS joined in August 2009. The UN Global Compact is a framework that allows the committed commercial institutions to align their operations and strategies with ten internationally recognized principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and fighting corruption. The Compact is the largest international initiative to create a corporate sense of citizenship; where thousands of people from more than 100 countries from the whole world participate. The UN Global Compact is of a voluntary nature and aims to replicate its ten principles in the activities of the commercial institutions nationwide.
The company prepared its 7th UN Global Compact Communication on Progress Report in June 2016 and was posted on its website that relates to investors’ relations under the following link: http://ir.egytrans.com/arabic/un.php
