Our Communities

Vena Energy believes sustainability is about working together with diverse stakeholders for a better world and future. For families in rural communities and small towns where many of our projects are located, Vena Energy’s projects are an opportunity for the next generation to stay and work a job in the place where they grew up.

Donation Drive for Humanitarian Support During the Russia-Ukraine Conflict

Earlier in April 2022, Vena Energy partnered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), to organize an internal fund-raising campaign for our employees across 9 jurisdictions to donate towards the humanitarian aid for those displaced by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Vena Energy also matched its employee donations dollar-for-dollar, bringing the total donation from Vena Energy and our employees to more than US$18,000. The funds raised will go toward supporting displaced Ukrainian families with humanitarian assistance coordinated by UNHCR.

Supporting the Humanitarian Efforts During the Wildfires in South Korea

In March several towns in South Korea were devastated by wildfires that destroyed approximately 159 homes and 46 other buildings, leading to the evacuation of thousands of locals. To support humanitarian aid for the displaced communities and the first responders, Vena Energy donated a total of 90-million Korean won to five counties and cities including Yeongwol, Gangneung, Samcheok, Donghae and Uljin. Vena Energy will continue to work with the local governments, host communities in Korea to provide aid and support in these trying times.

Women Entrepreneurship Program in Indonesia

Since 2019 Vena Energy has been working closely with the host communities in the village of Geres in Indonesia to establish a Women Entrepreneurship Program, aimed at boosting the local economy as well as creating alternative revenue for the local women. In 2021 Vena Energy conducted a series of workshops to facilitate the processing, production and marketing of the local cassava chips. This year, the product is finally launched and we hope to introduce the program and the produce to the wider community in Indonesia.

Donation and Delivery of Heating Solutions to the Host Communities During Winter

The winter months can be a punishing season for most, especially the low-income families and the elderly who live in the rural areas of Seoul. On 7 December, employees of Vena Energy in South Korea provided heating solutions to help the members of the community stave off the cold. The essentials were delivered safely to its grateful beneficiaries, while abiding with the local pandemic regulations.
