Corporate Social Responsibility

ITP is dedicated to giving back to the communities it operates in across the region, via a wide range of participation programmes. Staff throughout the company are actively involved with the organisation and roll-out of projects throughout the year, through both ITP’s Community Action Fund and hands-on volunteer work.

 

Volunteering

As members of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce’s Engage Programme, ITP encourages its entire staff to get involved with volunteer projects, and as such offers two working days per year for individuals and teams to give back to their community.

 

Internal Initiatives

ITP drives awareness of major issues throughout the year thanks to an ongoing series of successful internal campaigns, including Wellness Weeks, Environmental Days and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, featuring everything from free fitness classes to seminars on the importance of self-examination.

 

Free Advertising

Every year, ITP dedicates a portion of its print and digital advertising inventory to entirely charitable causes, supporting the likes of Dubai Cares and EWS-WWF, and many more besides. Organisations such as UNICEF have also benefitted from influencer-fronted marketing campaigns developed by ITP Live.
