CSR

At Intercoil, CSR is an integral part of our daily business practice, having been awarded the Dubai Chamber CSR Label 2014 for the fourth consecutive year.

In March 2014, Intercoil launched Sleep Matters, a community initiative aimed at improving people’s lives by helping educate, inform and encourage health and wellbeing for residents in the UAE and other Arab countries. The first and most comprehensive resource in the region for all information related to sleep, Sleep Matters is a platform to unite lifestyle commentators and the community around a shared goal—getting a good night’s sleep.

Other CSR initiatives carried out by Intercoil include:

PARTNERSHIPS & COLLABORATIONS

Being the manufacturers of orthopedic beds and mattresses since 1974, we are committed to promoting healthy sleep and increasing awareness about the contribution sleep makes to a healthy life.  Initiatives include wellness workshops, presentations by leading experts in the fields of nutrition and psychological wellbeing, and collaboration with medical institutions to create specialist products. In association with healthcare specialists at Medcare Hospital, Intercoil is the first bedding company in the Middle East to create a range of beds and mattresses specially designed to support children in their development.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

A longtime proponent of environmental awareness, Intercoil runs recycling and energy conservation programs through all divisions of the company to ensure the most efficient waste management processes and least impact on the environment. Additionally, to minimise or eliminate workplace hazards, we conduct periodic air quality and noise level tests within and around the premises of our factories.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

An active member of the community in providing charity and assistance to the needy, Intercoil is equally active in educational initiatives, providing comprehensive internship programs for college students from both the UAE and abroad. In February 2014, Intercoil supported ‘Business for a Cause’, a conference organised by American University in Dubai (AUD), aimed at helping university students and fresh graduates in the UAE design, manage and sustain their own social enterprise. Encouraging a spirit of giving, we support our employees in donating their time and volunteering through various organisations, including ENGAGE Dubai, a programme of Dubai Chamber Centre for Responsible Business.
