AESSEAL and AES Engineering Managing Director, Chris Rea:

It is a privilege to be able to give. Traditionally this part of our activity has had a low profile but we understand that staff and customers want to know more about it. This information is provided since part of being a responsible business is the requirement to report.
None of the Group International charitable/community giving is included. The most active International Initiative is the South African based, volunteer only, AESSEAL Charitable Trust Pty Ltd, which concentrates on putting libraries into under-funded schools. We also work with the international charity WaterAid, to help transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities.
