Energizing Communities

Supporting Petite Martinique R. C. School

At Sol, we are committed to energizing our communities and we are proud to support the advancement of education! We recently partnered with Cooling Tech to install a brand-new air conditioning unit, supplied by Sol in the computer lab of the Petite Martinique R. C. School in Grenada. We officially handed over the unit at the school’s graduation ceremony among well-wishers including a representative from the Ministry of Education, Principal Reuben Patrice, local priest, Fr. Andrews and Collin Francis, Sol’s General Manager.
 
Congratulations once again to Petite Martinique’s class of 2021!

Powering Journeys

Supporting Flavors of Grenada Culinary Training Camp 

We at Sol have a passion for powering journeys, and so we recently joined forces with Flavors of Grenada to host a five (5) week culinary training camp for teenagers! To top off the experience, our campers coordinated a farm to table dinner in the grand dining room at the Tower Estate in St. Paul’s. Through this exciting culinary initiative, we were able to encourage young upcoming chefs and service personnel, build awareness of Grenada’s growing Hospitality Industry and educate Grenadians more about accessing, growing and preparing their own seasonal healthy foods and drinks. We are proud to have supported this initiative through a monetary contribution and the provision of Sol Gas for food preparation. A job well done to our campers; we cannot wait to see where this journey takes you!

Sol Gives Back through the donation of fuel to the BDF

Sol (Barbados) Ltd. (Sol) stands by its commitment to the community in which we operate, especially during these unprecedented times. As such, Sol has partnered with the Barbados Defence Force by donating 11,000 litres of fuel (with a retail value of over BBD $28,000.00) in our continued efforts to fulfil our mandate to be a true friend of the community and to be a good corporate citizen in the environments where we all live, work and play, and this is especially true amidst COVID-19.

The Barbados Defence Force (BDF) has been facilitating the distribution of care packages to vulnerable households as part of the Government’s COVID-19 Relief Programme. Sol has provided fuel to assist in this endeavour.

In response to the donation, Chief of Staff, Colonel Glyne Grannum had this to say,

For many years, Sol Petroleum (Barbados) SRL has been one of the Barbados Defence Force’s (BDF) foremost strategic partners. Loyal to their mission, values and promise in the fuel industry, the Sol Group has continuously contributed to the BDF’s mobility on land and at sea. During our fight against the unseen enemy, COVID-19, Sol understood and demonstrated their ability to be a team player and in the true sense of nationhood, made a considerable donation to augment the BDFs capabilities.  As I continue to lead the Force, I am truly comforted to know that in the face of many unknowns, the BDF has the necessary partners and corporate support to be effective”.

Mr. Roger Barrow, General Manager of Sol Barbados reaffirmed the company’s commitment to the region, “We take our corporate responsibility seriously and are mindful of the vital role that our products and services play in ’Powering Journeys and Energizing Communities’ in which we operate. This is just our way of showing that we care and we will continue to support those organizations helping others when we can.”

Sol, the leading supplier of petroleum-based products and energy solutions in the region has championed various initiatives to provide contributions of over BBD$700,000 regionally towards supporting essential workers and charitable food bank organizations responding to these challenging times. We remain committed to further supporting our community, guided by our social investment pillars, education, sports, environment, and charities.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Sol is proud to embrace the cultural tapestry and diversity of the Caribbean – a region which we are proud to call our home. We are convinced, as an organization, that there is more that unites us than that which separates us.

We have provided our team with opportunities to listen, discuss, share and learn from each other and we have challenged ourselves to come up with fresh ideas and new perspectives to help ensure that we maintain our focus and our commitment to diversity and inclusion. While we have taken the opportunity to celebrate Black History Month with the rest of the world, we believe that our team members should benefit from our commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout the year.
