Giving Back

JEP and WKPP constantly seek new avenues to strengthen the social capital that exists within our communities. From educational scholarships to casual work programs, we boast a complete empowerment portfolio that provides numerous opportunities for human development.

 
Our CSR portfolio focuses on four main features: Education, Environment, Health and Sports.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

At Jamaica Energy Partners, our CSR goal is to make a positive contribution to society, through impactful and sustainable initiatives. To that end, we constantly seek new avenues to strengthen the social capital that exists within our communities. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Portfolio focuses on four features. These include but are not limited to Education, Environment, Health and Sports.

Education and Skills Training

Each year, the company disburses millions of dollars in educational scholarships and grants to primary, secondary and tertiary level students. Since 1997, JEP has assisted over one thousand (1,000) students, and we are proud to say that some are now permanent employees at Jamaica Energy Partners. JEP is also involved in infrastructural improvements and school feeding programmes, catering to the nutritional needs of students from various schools in West Kingston and Old Harbour Bay.

Education is a top priority at JEP. Therefore, in addition to our scholarship programme, we ensure that students gain access to other academic opportunities through partnerships with the Jamaican Foundation for Lifelong Learning, HEART/NTA and the Institute of International Recognized Qualification.

Environment

As avid advocates of the environment, Jamaica Energy Partners currently sits on the boards of several NGOs including the Jamaica Environment Trust, Montego Bay Marine Park and the Jamaica Conservation Development Trust. We also participate in events such as International Coastal Clean-up Day, National Tree Planting Day and Schools’ Environmental Programmes.

Health

As part of JEP’s mission to strengthen our health sector, the company donates to institutions such as Spanish Town Hospital, National Chest Hospital, Kingston Public Hospital and the Victoria Jubilee Hospital. We also make it our duty to organize annual Blood Drives as well as Health and Dental Fairs, where residents are treated to complementary medical and non-medical services.

Sports

Our involvement in sports promotes unity in the communities and encourages a culture of discipline, sportsmanship and teamwork. For example, in 1995, JEP established the Jamaica Energy Partners’ Cricket Competition that has developed talents such as Shakar Thomas, Tamar Lambert, Andre Russell and Nkrumah Bonner, all of whom competitively and successfully represent Jamaica and the Caribbean region.


JEP and WKPP Scholarships

Jamaica Energy Partners (JEP) and West Kingston Power Partners (WKPP) recognise the need for academic advancement in order to foster economic development in Jamaica. The companies remain committed to laying the building blocks for academic success in the parish of St Catherine and in the West Kingston division, in which they operate. To this end, each company awards two (2) scholarships each academic year to cover tuition, books and material.
