SATS believes in the importance of giving back to the community, emphasising the promotion of economic, social and environmental sustainability. As a result, SATS’ Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives revolve around Social Engagement, Environmental Sustainability and People’s Rights, in order to achieve the desired outcomes of a caring mindset amongst SATS staff, reduction in carbon footprint, and implementation of positive Human Capital practices.

Social Engagement

SATS supports underprivileged individuals in enhancing their well-being, building their independence, and promoting their development and re-integration into their communities. Since 1979, SATS has been actively involved in community service, from running a home for the elderly to monthly food distribution to support needy families. SATS aims to partner with non-profit organisations (with IPC status) and support them to develop and run programmes that are in line with our social engagement policy. The three key thrusts of SATS’ social engagement policy are:

Some of the volunteer organisations that SATS has worked alongside include Heartware Network, National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre, Society for the Aged Sick, and Club Rainbow.

Empowering People to Achieve

Through training and other initiatives to enhance likelihood of realising their aspirations;

Rebuilding Lives

Through support for disadvantaged individuals, families or communities to re-integrate into society, and, for retirees in their transition to their 2nd career.

Broad Criteria for Selection of Partners and Programmes

Impact of Programme

The programme must address a significant need and have clear and measurable outcomes. Higher priority may be given to programmes that serve areas where:

Feasibility of Programme

The programme must be outcome-driven and is feasible given the available funds and the capability of the implementing organisations.

Capability of Partners

The organisations should be established Institutions of Public Character (IPC) with the ability to identify needs and to develop, implement, monitor and review programmes. They must apply the outcomes-focused approach and be committed to monitoring progress and adjusting programmes as needed.

Priority of Funding

As there are many meaningful causes to support, SATS Foundation will not be able to support all programmes outside of our priorities. In particular, we will give less priority to:

Potential for Volunteerism

SATS Foundation aims to provide volunteer opportunities to build the spirit of volunteerism. Programmes that allow for volunteer participation will be given higher priority.

Environmental Sustainability

SATS works towards reducing our carbon footprint throughout the SATS family. Here are some of our initiatives to ‘Go Green’:

People’s Rights

SATS works closely with our labour unions to support the rights of our staff. A recent initiative is:

Wage @ 60 Policy

SATS implemented the non-mandatory wage cut policy with effect from 1st December 2010. This new policy is grounded on the performance-based wage system where the individual’s job value and individual’s performance rating are the key determinants of the staff’s wage after 60 years old. This policy provides flexibility in managing and rewarding good performing staff in their roles.
