About Us

Enriching Lives

 

At Engen, our corporate social investment aims deliver sustainable impact, improving the quality of life and wellbeing of society. That is why we support community upliftment efforts and social development initiatives that encourage engagement and empowerment of those in greatest need, all with a common aim – TO MAKE LASTING, SUSTAINABLE IMPACT. 

 

Disaster Relief/COVID-19

At Engen we seek to provide a helping hand to those in need. Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic Engen has made a number of investments to help vulnerable communities across South Africa.

 

FOOD FORWARD SA - R1m Fuel Support.

 

SAFE SANITATION - R2.5m in support of three schools.

 

GIFT OF THE GIVERS - R2m fuel assistance + R500k Medical Screening & Testing Equipment.

 

DROUGHT RELIEF - 40 Jojo Tanks in conjunction with Department of Health.

 

FOOD PARCELS - 3 000 food parcels distributed in South Durban & 6 350 in Diepsloot.

 

DEPT. OF HEALTH - R1m worth of fuel to power emergency response vehicles.

 

PPE TO VARIOUS BENEFICIARIES - R1.4m PPE Equipment.

 

PPE PROVIDED TO 4 DEPOT COMMUNITIES - PPE/face masks to communities living in Witbank, Steelpoort, Rustenburg, Klerksdorp.

 

SPAZA SHOPS - Branded 35 spaza shops with personal safety messages.

Education

Education is a critical priority in the countries in which we operate. Not only do we provide supplementary support to government efforts promoting Maths and Science education, we have also created bursary and training programmes of our own. The Engen Bursary Programme and Skills Development Scheme drive the development of a pool of highly qualified technical and commercial talent. 

 

We currently support nine Engen Maths and Science Schools across South Africa, exposing learners from grades 10 – 12 to high quality teachers and educational materials. The programme has yielded a remarkable 90+% matric pass rate at these schools for a number of years.

 

Our Computer School in Wentworth, Durban offers nationally recognised computer courses to the South Durban community, training over 300 students annually. Over the past decade, Engen’s free computer skills training has transformed many lives in the area surrounding our refinery, boosting graduates’ prospects of finding employment.

 

 

 

Employee/Dealer Outreach

Engen’s employees and dealers are actively encouraged to participate in community outreach initiatives in their local communities. 

 

DCPP (Dealer Community Partnership Programme) is a partnership between Engen and service station dealers. It aims to contribute to the development of disadvantaged communities through the funding of initiatives that uplift, educate and support communities found around Engen service stations.

 

ECPP (Employee Community Partnership Programme) creates meaningful partnerships with Engen employees who are involved in community upliftment initiatives. We support the efforts of our employees involved in the development of their communities.

 

Environment

Engen has through its own programmes and business improvements, together with wider industry and government initiatives, made an increasing contribution to a cleaner environment and more sustainable business practices.

 

We offer continued support to the Rose Foundation – which focuses on the recycling of used oil. In addition to this, our on-going work in the Durban South basin ensures that we remain vigilant of our impact on the communities and schools in the area.

Health & Safety

Engen drives a company-wide focus on health and wellness, while investing in the communities we operate in. 

 

Our Engen Klevakidz Paraffin Safety campaign educates rural and township communities about safe handling and storage of paraffin, especially in high-risk areas where these accidents are common. 

 

The annual Engen Driver Wellness aims to improve occupational health and wellness among long-distance truck drivers by providing free health screening, advice on healthy lifestyle choices and consultations where necessary. Our Forecourt Wellness initiative delivers the same service to our forecourt attendants.
