Since its inception in 1922, Attock Refinery has been contributing towards CSR, which is an integral part of our core values. During these long years, we have taken exhaustive initiatives in this realm and continue to find ways and means to meaningfully contribute towards community welfare as under:

Attock Sahara Foundation

Attock Sahara Foundation (ASF) is a registered Non-Profit Organization (NPO), sponsored by ARL to help and support the less privileged segment of the community through various welfare programs which include Apprenticeship Program, Scholarship Scheme, Marriage Support Fund, Poor Patient Fund, Collection and Distribution of Zakat and community development projects. ASF lays special emphasis to empower and strengthen the less privileged women by imparting different skills and creating awareness to enable them to become earning hands for their families.

National Cleaner Production Centre Foundation (NCPC-F)

National Cleaner Production Centre Foundation (NCPC-F), an NPO, sponsored by ARL, offers Cleaner Production Services, Environmental services, Energy Audits, bioremediation, waste minimization and its disposal / incineration. One of its major aim is to build capacity of the relevant people through Environmental Awareness workshops, Impact Assessment trainings and conducts seminars on Loss Prevention Audits, Energy Conservation and drinking water quality. It also actively participates in tree plantation drives including provision of plants.

Environment Protection & Clean Energy Measures

ARL in collaboration with The Attock Oil Company Limited (AOC) has established Attock Institute of Horticulture (AIH) for the promotion of art and practice of horticulture. ARL has established Morgah Biodiversity Park which helps to conserve the Biodiversity of Potohar Region and provides recreation and education to the visitors. ARL plants 10,000 to 12,000 saplings each year to enhance the vegetation cover, improve the environment and conserve natural ecosystems for future generations.

To reduce the energy cost and a step towards generation of clean / green energy ARL has installed solar power systems on rooftops of a number of buildings on its premises.
