Environmental, Social, and Governance

As we move towards a holistic approach to evaluating our company performance, the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indicators have now been accepted as a valuable metric for gauging our company’s non-financial performance. We are aligning our organization towards this global shift of incorporating sustainability practices in day-to-day business activities. This shift has been motivated by the collective understanding that corporations have a larger responsibility in reducing their businesses’ negative social and environmental effects.

By having ESG objectives in the overall company strategy, we have provided a roadmap for all our operating units to realize set social and environmental goals

Tree For Health Program (T4H)

Tree for Health Program (T4H) is the corporate Social Investment (CSI) flagship program of AAR Healthcare (K) Limited. It was started in 1996 to combat environmental degradation and facilitate improved health status among school children and the community. T4H is implemented through AAR Healthcare’s employee voluntary Program (EVP) and community engagement by partnering with schools (Primary and secondary schools-both public and private) and other institutions.

The project has a long- term strategy aimed at sustainability in schools and communities. This is implemented via 3 thematic pillars.

  • T4H PILLAR 1

    Clinical – caring for children through deworming and handwashing campaigns. This Pillar contributes to SDG 3 that seeks to ensure healthy lives and the promotion of well-being for all.

  • T4H PILLAR 2

    Environmental - caring for our environment through tree planting, environmental awareness & education. This pillar is anchored on SDG 15 that ensures we protect, restore and promote sustainable use of ecosystems, sustainable management of forests, and in doing so, combat desertification.

  • T4H PILLAR 3

    Outreach - caring for students through our reach and mentorship. This Pillar is guided by SDG 4 that ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities.
