Airports of Mauritius caring for stakeholders
We are conscious of our social responsibility and as such our budget for Corporate Social responsibility is being used to implement several projects at national level and more particularly in the south of the island. As a key economic player, Airports of Mauritius Co ltd contributes to the welfare of stakeholders.
Health, education, environment protection, poverty alleviation,
sports and entertainment have been the areas where we have devoted our attention
Airports of Mauritius also promotes the development of villages in its vicinity, and considers education as one of a catalyst for achieving this aim. This has motivated the company to assist several educational projects. AML has donated computers to NGOs and schools and helped to set up ICT education courses in several localities.
AML contributes to infrastructural improvements in and around the airport. Amongst others, we maintain several bus stop shelters, and contribute to landscaping projects and provide technical assistance in projects for the benefit of all, such as in schools. The renovation of the Mahebourg Hospital is another project which has benefited from the support of AML.
Environment Protection and Chikungunya Prevention Campaign
Airports of Mauritius, as a responsible organisation has contributed significantly to the protection of the environment in the vicinity of the airport and in around 15 neighbouring villages. AML has actively contributed to governments campaign against Chikungunya a mosquito vectored disease.
AML provides logistical support for cleaning and insecticide spraying campaigns and works in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Quality of life, the Ministry of Local Government, the District Council, village councils and NGOs in this respect. Sensitising the inhabitants also forms an integral part of our campaign and to date it has helped to encourage environment friendly practices and make our stakeholders more conscious of the need to preserve the indigenous fauna and flora.
Sport is sound leisure
AML has been the main sponsor of numerous sports activities organised by welfare and other benevolent associations in the region. Several competitions, such as football tournaments are held annually with the support of the company and have contributed significantly to the promotion of sports mainly amongst the youth, providing healthy leisure, and remain important social gatherings for families to come together.
AML has also been an important contributor to the National Sports Awards 2006 which rewards the best Mauritian athletes and is organised by the Mauritius Sports Council.
