Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR 2016

DGPC’s CSR activities encompass every aspect of the everyday lives of those communities covering their social, environmental, cultural and religious well-being. The disaster management teams in the power plants cover a much wider area in terms of their services during accidents, fires and other such emergencies.

Apart from supporting schools and health services in the immediate vicinity of the power plants, DGPC shares ambulance and school bus services with the communities. As part of a tradition it has built for itself, DGPC employees support a number of underprivileged children through schools.

Support is further given to the efforts of local governments, to religious establishments, and to socially and environmentally beneficial initiatives of NGOs and CSOs; many of them through contributions of the employees. A lot of emphasis is also given to environmental related activities through plantation of trees and their care. One of DGPC’s core values is to maintain its premises and surrounding areas clean and green. DGPC undertakes cleaning campaigns on a regular basis.

The highlight of 2016 was the celebrations of the Royal Birth of His Royal Highness the Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck through a variety of activities. DGPC employees planted thousands of trees and contributed funds to plant a lot many more trees throughout the country.
