Sembcorp Marine is committed to be a positive agent for social advancement and value creation.
We embrace our role as an active corporate citizen and a caring organisation by championing a wide range of community improvement and industry development initiatives to make a positive difference to society. Our employees also participate in volunteerism projects to reach out and show their care to those in need within the community.
As part of the community engagement thrust of our corporate social responsibility programme, we focus our efforts on advancing causes relating to ‘youth and education’, ‘community care and development’, ‘nation building’, ‘environmental care’, ‘arts promotion’ and ‘industry outreach’.
Youth and Education
We strive to provide equal opportunities for children and youths to develop their potential and pursue their dreams.Through our School Book Assistance Grant (SchoolBAG) programme, we provide students from financially disadvantaged families with grants to subsidise their school expenses and enrichment programmes. For more information about the SchoolBAG programme, please click here.
Demonstrating our strong support for education, we regularly sponsor book prizes given by educational institutions to honour students who excel in their studies and co-curricular activities. We also provide academic awards and bursaries to encourage and support students in their educational journey.
We also champion research initiatives by educational institutions at the tertiary level. We have committed $10 million to the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) for the establishment of the Sembcorp Marine Lab @ NTU, an advanced research facility that focuses on developing cutting-edge technologies and solutions for the offshore and marine industry.
Community Care and Development
Through our corporate giving programme, we extend care and support to those in need within the community through avenues such as donations, sponsorships, staff volunteering efforts and community service.
We have close links with our adopted charity, the Yishun Students Care Service, and actively support the organisation’s initiatives to positively impact children and youths.
Besides contributing money, our employees also make a difference to the less fortunate through participation in various community service and volunteerism projects.
We are committed towards strengthening community bonding and national unity. Our steadfast commitment towards nation building is reflected in our support of community initiatives as well as our active participation in and sponsorship of Singapore's National Day Parade.
We continue to raise awareness of environmental protection and preservation through the Green Wave Environmental Care Competition. Started in 2003, the Green Wave competition is an annual initiative that encourages children and youths to apply their creative talent in developing innovative environmental projects. The event also serves as a platform for us to engage industry stakeholders and community leaders in championing the green cause.

We support the growth and development of arts and culture and in Singapore through several platforms − including the sponsorship of concerts, art exhibitions and museum projects − to foster greater creativity, passion and vibrancy within the community.
In partnership with industry organisations and associations, we actively promote the industry and extend our outreach through various national and international platforms. These programmes include trade exhibitions, training courses, dialogue sessions, award presentations as well as networking activities.
