Accelerating human potential internationally
Around the world, supporting the communities in which we operate is fundamental to our success and part of our commitment as a sustainable business. Wherever we work, we strive to link our support for the needs and priorities of local communities with our strategic objectives and competencies.
Our chosen areas where we can best leverage our expertise and create long-term mutual value are in STEM education, youth development, culture, and social welfare. Examples of how and where we have sought to make a positive difference include:
The Houston Museum of Natural Science:
Ongoing support for the renovation and expansion of the Wiess Energy Hall in the heart of the energy capital of North America. The museum draws more than two million visitors each year.
Michigan Science Center (MiSC):
With a mission to inspire curious minds of all ages to discover, explore, and appreciate STEM learning, we supported MiSC with the addition of a new energy module to their “Energy on the Move” traveling exhibit, which reaches more than 300,000 people annually.
The Netherlands — Maastricht University:
Established support for a Ph.D. program focused on sustainable approaches for bio-based materials, including biomass and bioenergy.
United Kingdom — the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES):
The Saudi Aramco Fellowship helps support a total of seven Ph.D. fellows in the field of energy studies.
Provided assistance for the design and construction work for a renewable energy themed playground at the Seoul Energy Dream Center, a museum and educational complex.
Backed research and development activities, including CO2 capture and storage, by the Kyoto-based Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth.
Open to students in China, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and the Philippines, the “Aramco-Enactus Innovative Challenge” inspired students to develop innovative solutions that address issues related to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency in their communities.
