Three UAE organisations – the Emirates Foundation, the UAE Paralympic Committee, and the Emirates National Schools – will collectively receive a total of AED 3 million (ca. EUR 734,600) to help sustain the ongoing efforts of these social organisations. Borealis CEO Alfred Stern met with representatives of all three organisations at a festive signing ceremony held in Abu Dhabi on 28 January 2020.

“Since its creation over a decade ago, the Borealis Social Fund has been about caring for others in the communities where we operate,” says Borealis CEO Alfred Stern. “It has become an important conduit for promoting education and social integration – and thus social stability, as well. We see the Borealis Social Fund as an essential component of doing business in a responsible way, and are glad to be able to support the valuable work done by these organisations.”
