Social Responsibility AlbChrome committed to making a positive contribution to society

AlbChrome has been part of BALFIN Group contribution of approximately EUR 1 million in supporting a large number of social investments commitments, marking a valuable impact in various sectors such as education, health, environment, children, emergencies’ responses, etc.

We continued providing financial support for the two Vocational High Schools in Elbasan and Bulqiza, supplying these educational institutions with the needed material basis, as well as providing part of the salaries of the academic staff. Every year, dozens of students from these schools take internships at the Chrome Mine in Bulqiza or at the Ferrochrome Plant in Elbasan and are, upon completing their studies as electricians or secondary technicians, hired by AlbChrome.

We provided financial support to the World Vision’s Program “Tungjatjeta”, whence 8 children with disabilities from Bulqizë received specialised at-home treatment.

We provided material basis for 60 children frequenting Nursery No. 2 in Bulqizë, contributing thus to its full furnishing.

AlbChrome and Fashion Group Albania wished children of mine workers for the new academic year start through tailor-made presents, conveying the importance and promoting the achievement of high-quality learning outcomes.

During December, we provided gifts for 93 orphaned children form Bulqizë, conveying the message ‘No one is alone’.

We are the main sponsor of the Bulqiza football stadium construction, in cooperation with Albanian Football Association. Thanks to this support, the city of Buqliza will have for the first time ever such a stadium.

Caring for our Community

We are committed to work closely with local communities and treat them as a real partner.  AlbChrome acknowledges the importance of playing an active and positive role in the local community.

We are committed to making a positive contribution to society

We believe that in addition to operating a responsible and ethical business, we can make a broader contribution to the communities in which we operate, thereby strengthening society.  We are committed to achieving this through engagement and advocacy on important issues and by supporting targeted development areas to benefit the communities where we operate.  By strengthening and building more resilient societies, we are helping create a sustainable future.

We want our community investments to be effective and deliver the best possible outcomes for communities.  The projects we support are driven by the needs and resources of our local communities, with thorough consultation, research and planning.  Our investments are made locally and through our employees who donate their time and money to community causes with support from our Human Resources Department.

Economic development

We aim to create economic and social benefits for the communities in which we operate.  A thriving local economy offers people the ability to contribute to and benefit from opportunities in the region.

Education and training

We believe education is one of the most effective ways of empowering society and we promote life-long learning.  We support yearly education programs; work with governments to improve access to quality education and offer mentoring and scholarship programs to our staff children’s.


The health and wellbeing of a community is fundamental – healthy communities are productive communities.  Our community investments aim to strengthen systems and increase access to health services, including in rural and remote areas, to help provide the medical care needed in our local communities.
