Corporate Social Responsibility

As the master developer working to build the city of Hulhumalé, Gulhifalhu and Thilafushi, HDC also strives to build a better community. It is our vision to create state of the art smart communities in the city by contributing to sustainable development and adopting responsible behaviors that reflect our core values as an organization.

Partnership benefits shall be extended to only those events that fall under HDC’s corporate CSR strategies focusing on the following areas:

  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Community Empowerment
  • Health and Wellness

The Corporation will not support or contribute to an initiative that is:

  • Against the laws and regulations of the Republic of Maldives
  • Contradicts the corporation’s corporate values
  • Does not have measurable positive outcomes and limited market exposure
