Charitable Donations

AES takes pride in our corporate citizenship and is committed to the support of the communities where we live and work. Through charitable donations, AES enhances the quality of life for the communities which host our businesses. Our people also contribute their time to the community through volunteer efforts. The combination of financial support and human resources affirms AES' commitment to being a good neighbour.

Policies

AES prioritises long-term partnerships to deliver our CSR goals. Additionally we provide small charitable donations for local initiatives, administered by our employee led Charity Committee.

Donations are generally limited to the communities where AES has operational businesses. As of August 2015 the local catchment area is defined as the County Antrim area up to and including Carnlough on the North Antrim Coast, as far South as Belfast and includes Islandmagee, Ballyclare and Glengormley and the villages lying in between. AES is an equal opportunities funder.

Donations of up to £500 are targeted to local non profit organisations, with preference for charities nominated by an AES employee or contractor, and those meeting AES UK & Ireland’s current corporate social responsibility priorities as outlined in our CSR Strategy :

  • Environmental Improvement
  • Employability
  • Supporting Communities
  • Employee Engagement

Donations above £500 are generally reserved for AES Charity Partners and the AES Charity of the Year.

Request a charitable donation

General inquiries and requests should addressed to the AES Charities Committee by email to uki.communication@aes.com. Requests must be submitted on the AES Charities Committee application form which can be downloaded here or by contacting AES.

Once received, requests will be reviewed by the Charities Committee at quarterly meetings. All donations are subject to The AES Corporation’s compliance procedure. Please allow approximately twelve weeks for evaluation.
