"Energy for learning" -
The ThomasLloyd Foundation
For us, holistic conduct is about assuming responsibility. And that includes responsibility for the people who make it possible for us to realise our infrastructure projects in the first place – as our employees, suppliers for our biomass power plants, and partners. We therefore provide assistance wherever a helping hand is needed.
Support school projects
For a better future
San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippinen
Founded in 2016, the ThomasLloyd Foundation has set itself the goal of promoting in particular school and playgroup projects at its investment locations in South East Asia, as an expression of its full responsibility and social commitment and of its ties with the local people. ThomasLloyd believes that access to a reliable electricity supply plays a fundamental part in a region’s societal and economic development. A functioning energy infrastructure is therefore also the key to education and the basis for personal and societal prospects.
After the 2013 typhoon in the Philippines:
ThomasLloyd provides financial and direct reconstruction aid.
As one of the largest foreign investors in the renewable energy infrastructure in the Philippines, we have a strong sense of affiliation with the people there. The ThomasLloyd Group management therefore decided without hesitation to help the people in the regions affected by the typhoon swiftly and unbureaucratically.
In addition to contributing funds, ThomasLloyd worked with its local partners to provide concrete relief supplies and services in order to rebuild the places affected. All the available employees were sent to the affected areas as soon as the extent of the damage caused by the typhoon became known. Assistance was therefore provided right where it was needed with the aid of diggers, lorries and cranes. Streets blocked by fallen trees were cleared and made passable again, enabling ambulances and aid organisations to get to the people in need quickly.
In addition, the company’s long-term presence in the Philippines and its understanding of the regional needs ensured that the financial aid likewise went directly to the victims and was able to alleviate the affected people’s hardship a little. It also helped with the reconstruction work, which is still ongoing.
