The Europa Group supported the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) as part of the Group’s social responsibility for 2019. Next year, the Group will again continue to support the foundation’s important environmental and conservation work as part of its social responsibility for 2020.

Social Responsibility is whereby businesses make a meaningful, positive contribution to the development of society.

SANCCOB is a registered, non-profit organisation whose primary objective is to reverse the decline of seabird populations through the rescue, rehabilitation and release of ill, injured, abandoned and oiled seabirds. The foundation focuses on the endangered African penguin. As part of supporting the foundation’s “Adopt a Penguin” programme, several years ago, the Europa team “adopted” and named a new-born endangered African Penguin, “Douglas”.

With the assistance of volunteers and sponsorship from companies such as the Europa Group, the organisation provides food, medicine and care to rehabilitate penguins and seabirds back to the wild. Because of SANCCOB’s important conservation work with seabirds, and Douglas’s healthy growth, the Europa Team decided to continue supporting the foundation as part of the its social responsibility for 2020.

The Europa Group contributes to various local and international charitable organisations that share our values and goals as part of our social responsibility.These have included the Gibraltar Heritage Trust, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, and Baby STEPPs.
