With the help of the appealing cartoon character, Cylvester Cylinder, the NP Gas LPG School Safety Caravan was launched on April 19th, 2019.

A socially responsible initiative of the Trinidad & Tobago National Petroleum Marketing Company Limited’s (NPMC) new LPG (cooking gas) brand, NP Gas, the caravan makes its way to primary schools across Trinidad and Tobago and adopts engaging ways to teach primary school students the importance of using LPG and LPG cylinders safely.

The initiative is part of a wide-scale safety awareness campaign that will reach all schools and incorporates safety tips and demonstrations in addition to an informative activity booklet that’s distributed to the students, to ensure safe practices are understood and reinforced.

As a responsible corporate citizen, the NP Gas sees this as an opportunity to build new and deeper community network as it responds to the growing needs and concerns of a range of stakeholders.

For the first time ever on October 8th, 2019, Ultra Lubricants in conjunction with the Vehicle Management Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (VMCOTT) kicked off their initiative offering NGOs and charities free oil and filter changes as well as 40-point vehicle inspections and complimentary car washes.

Change for Better; Charity Oil Change

Being aware of the challenges these institutions face in maintaining their daily operations, NPMC spearheaded this initiative to help several organisations including Birdsong, Rainbow Rescue, Goodwill Industries, the Lady Hochoy Home, the Cotton Tree Foundation, the Loveuntil Foundation and the T&T Coalition Against Domestic Violence just to name a few.

Ultra Lubricants is honoured to be able to support the efforts of those who work tirelessly to improve the quality of life of some of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens, sincethe funds saved through this initiative allows the organisations to reallocate funds to other necessities.

Trinidad and Tobago has an extraordinary, vast and diverse pool of cultural heritage as our unique festival and artforms (music and pan) carry a special and well-deserved respect in the eyes of all nationals. In fact, our Carnival festivities have long been regarded as the epitome of creativity and a symbol of cultural expression.

Preserving our Cultural Heritage: 

Supporting Junior Panorama &Unsponsored Steelbands

For this reason, NPMC’s efforts to preserve our cultural heritage have gained new momentum as the Company continues to givestrong financial support to the Junior Panorama Championship in addition to giving financial aid to equip several unsponsored steelbands with banners and t-shirts for the competition.

Funding for cultural initiatives such as these is critical to the nation’s economic development through tourism, and as a responsible corporate citizen, NPMC feels compelled to ensure that the tradition and modernity of the culture is passed on to future generations with the required amounts of energy and passion, so that we can do our part to conserve the world’s most outstanding festival.

NPMC is proud to support the Pan in Schools Co-ordinating Council’s (PSCC) Vacation Programme which has been in existence for more than fifteen (15) years. After having conducted a needs assessment with educators across Trinidad and Tobago, the PSCC’s focus has been on harnessing the skills and developing the talents of marginalised youths in many communities through various programmes in Panorama Arranging and CSEC Music Composition.

This PSCC’s Vacation Programmehas produced many success stories inseveral communities and many participants have returned to their schools and youth groups as trainees, essentially passing on the skills acquired to their classmates, under the supervision of their teachers. Additionally, upon completing the workshops participants leave with a portfolio of their work and continue to develop their music using software to record their arrangements and compositions which are submitted as components of their CSEC Music Examinations.

As a proud sponsor, this initiative allows the NPMC to support the preservation of our culture for future generations and the success of this venture allows at-risk youth to develop practical skills that can be honed and nurtured into entrepreneurial skills.
