Our CSR initiative is governed by three key elements:
- Economy Empowerment
These values have helped shaped our CSR Philosophy to:
- Be a responsible and transparent business in our areas of operation, as this is fundamental in granting a Licence to operate (LTO) and generating long-term growth for the Company;
- Create sustainable and lasting legacies for local communities and humanity in general;
- Operate to the highest international social, environmental and safety standards and;
- Maintain high standards of corporate governance.
We recognize ISO 26000 as a reference document that provides guidance for integration/implementation of social responsibility as well as other National and International guidelines including: UN Sustainable Development Goals – SDG’s ; United Nations Global Compact (UNGC); The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for MNEs; The Nigerian Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI); IFC Performance Standards and ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning (MNE Declaration).
