Through its operations, Mazkan International plays an important part in society’s development. Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) agenda is not only a reflection of our commitment to our staff, but towards our clients, their communities and nations. The actions we take are based not only on a clear strategy and vision, but also a set of company wide values and ambitious goals to be a responsible company, a stable business partner and employer.
Mazkan International has played an important role within international business since it's formation, and been involved within the private acquisition of several companies and groups in order to fulfil our directive of development and growth. In pace with globalization and growing markets, together with the onset of developing market economies, Mazkan International's operations have become more recognized within the international arena. Today the Group is active in around 30 countries and has around 400 employees. Our overarching goal is to contribute positively towards society, through continued response towards its needs.

Group Management has assigned individuals responsibility for each of the sectors we operate.
The General counsel has overarching responsibility for our code of conduct and for raising business ethics issues in the organisation.

If any confusion arises, it is the duty of the employee to bring it to the attention of his or her immediate supervisor. Mazkan International has also established a whistle-blower function as well as an ethics and compliance unit within the legal department, which is responsible for the Group’s rules and ethical standards.
Our efforts are guided by our overall vision, business concept and values. Certain specific measures are governed by our sponsorship policy, which requires that sponsorship activities generally focus on education and technology.
