Port Pipavav is committed to being active in the community in which it operates, and strives for progress and advancement through these efforts.
The majority of Port Pipavavís social responsibility activities are focussed on supporting local and village schools in and around the port community. he port has established a strong track record in providing a wide range of support to several schools in the area. Specific ways in which the port has been able to make a positive impact in these educational institutions include donating laboratory equipment, teaching aids, stationary, charts and sports gear. In one school, Port Pipapav has carried out repairs to the school facility (including the roof and furniture), and donated a drinking water tank. In addition, APM Terminals Pipavav has established a budget specifically earmarked for making periodic contributions to these institutions.
Apart from providing financial support, the port organises tours and visits to the schools.
