ADCOOPS recognizes education as one of the fundamental pillars of any society and considers it as a priority area for its CSR activities.

The aim is to raise awareness and solve educational difficulties and needs through our products and services in order to contribute to society’s development.

We aim to be leaders in environmental sustainability and are implementing various initiatives to protect the environment and communities where we operate by preserving resources.  We engage our employees in public environmental activities and campaigns and constantly promote awareness of environmental concerns.

One of our main lines of action is waste management. We actively follow the Waste Reduction Program of Tadweer – Center for Waste Management by encouraging to reduce, re-use and recycle waste. We are promoting innovative solutions to encourage recycling and waste reduction.

We are committed to reduce our energy consumption. We are gradually installing energy saving LED lamps across our stores and facilities and are carefully selecting equipment with lower environmental impact.

ADCOOPS strives to fulfil our responsibilities towards communities where we operate by providing essential services.
