Blood saves lives, but is only available in small quantities. To help reduce this scarcity, blood drives are organized at the Marquard & Bahls headquarters in Hamburg and our worldwide sites. In 2017, blood drives were organized at the IOT terminal in Goa, India, and the Oiltanking terminal in Sohar, Oman. Giving blood has been part of our CSR activities since 2010. Oiltanking Asia-Pacific, for example, organized its first blood drive at the tank terminal in Singapore in 2011, with many employees participating. More than 200 colleagues volunteered to donate blood during the annual health week at the IOT project in Haryana, in Panipat, India, in 2010.
