Sustainability has always been a part of what Renaissance does – long before concepts like ‘sustainability’ or ‘ICV’ were buzzwords, our business model was putting safety first and focusing on how improving efficiency makes us stronger and more competitive.
Today, our working ethos of Safe, Efficient, Green, Local underpins our sustainability approach:
no harm to people
growing and working efficiently
no harm to the environment
serious about In-Country Value
The best way to understand our approach to sustainability is through our annual sustainability report Microsite, here

Our programme for small and medium size enterprises (SME) here in Oman offers them guidance and support to compete to become part of our supply chain.
How does it work?
The programme is open to Omani-owned and operated SMEs and to Omanis who want to form a new SME, if they are able to provide any of the goods or services we buy or outsource.
For an SME to grow strong it is important that the business is competitive, so we will guide you on how to compete for Renaissance business by being as good as, or better than, imported goods or services in terms of SAFETY, SPEED, QUALITY and PRICE. We will help you understand our requirements in each of these measures. We will help you plan for a guaranteed volume of business. We will pay you promptly; and, in some cases, we may be able to pay you in advance to get you started.
Am I an SME?
We use the European Commission definition of SME, which has three categories:
