At Jahangir Siddiqui & Co. Ltd. (JSCL), we believe in playing our part in building this nation which has given so much to us. It is our moral and ethical responsibility to step up and offer a helping hand to the member of the community in need.
As a socially responsible entity, we desire to take initiatives which make us add value to people’s lives and the environment around them. In line with our Corporate Social Responsibility philosophy, we have clearly defined CSR objectives which revolve around behaving ethically, following best practices and contributing to the economic development of the country. Today, we are amongst the very few organizations that have an active CSR policy in place.
JSCL conducts its Corporate Social Responsibility through the Mahvash & Jahangir Siddiqui Foundation (MJSF) and this collaboration has led them to collectively be a strong advocate of various philanthropic activities including extensive relief efforts in the 2005 earthquake, 2008 IDP crisis and the recent floods.
