Representative presents OMV’s SR measures


TEHRAN, May 18 (Shana) — Representative of the Austrian energy heavyweight, OMV, said observing social responsibility measures make one of the company’s keys to success.

Addressing a conference on corporate social responsibility in petroleum industry, Raheleh Dolatabadi said on Tuesday that OMV is currently carrying out 300 projects in 20 countries across the world and is still working on SR measures in many of the fields it has long left.

“Responsible oil and gas recovery, innovation in generation of clean energies, holding training courses for SR activities in oil and gas fields and educating and training women are three of OMV’s strategies to carry out SR measures,” she said.

Dolatabadi said SR activities are not merely a bunch of charitable measures taken by companies; rather, they are economic initiatives by which companies will benefit from returns in the long run.
