2020 is a year like no other! Since October 2019, Lebanon has been undergoing exceptional times. From a revolution and uprisings to an economic crisis and a global pandemic, we at IPT had one thing in mind: how to confront and overcome these unprecedented challenges. We had to keep going.

As circumstances keep changing quickly, our main focus remains on how to adapt and stay ahead in our industry. We are working hard to ensure we can keep serving our stakeholders. To stay on top, we followed three main pillars: IPT's focus on the local community and ensuring our presence and growth across the country, our focus on health and safety challenges coming our way, as well as going even further and taking part in several social and environmental initiatives. 

IPT Growth   
With the growing social and economic unrest, we started our year by focusing on how we can play an active role in our society.
• We launched the Hiring Lebanese campaign as a responsible initiative aiming to provide new job opportunities amidst difficult and exceptional circumstances. The initiative proved successful, with over 30% of staff at our stations have become Lebanese in a few months, setting the trend for future hiring.
• We broadened our reach by adding 14 stations this year to our growing network of 217 stations... 

Health & Safety  
Heath and Safety has been a big theme and priority in 2020 for the world and IPT.
• We carried on a live firefighting maneuver at our terminals in coordination with the local authorities to ensure security and fast response to any accident 
• We held continuous trainings at the LPG gas site and IPT terminals to ensure the highest safety standards are constantly applied... 

Initiatives 

• We joined the e-movement through our "Berytech e-Hackathon 2020" participation & took part in a webinar organized by Griffin Leadership to discuss and evaluate the ongoing impact of IPT's "Hiring Lebanese" initiative.
• We encouraged women’s empowering role with celebrities at our stations...

Despite all the challenges we have faced this year, we continue to embrace the difficulties, finding ways to adapt to the situation against all odds. Through our resilience, we hope we all emerge towards a brighter future in our country.
