ENASCO recognizes that our licence to operate as a company must be earned through behaviour that does not compromise the wellbeing of current or future generations. This responsible behaviour is a key determinant of our long-term business success. For ENASCO this means:
- Acting with respect for people, communities and the environment;
- Acting transparently with all shareholders in full respect of the rule of law and human rights;
- Contributing to the development goals and value creation objectives of host countries;
- Integrating the principles of sustainable development and corporate responsibility into our business strategy, planning, decision-making and operating management systems.
Providing clear public reporting on our management systems and performance relating to ethics, human rights, employees, health and safety, environment and communities.
We believe the right to development is a basic human right, without which other human rights cannot be secured or sustained. It is therefore our intention to make a positive difference by contributing to development goals in the communities and countries where we operate.
These tenets of our policy inform how we deliver community investment projects. As a result our investment is increasingly focused on projects that address the impacts of our activities, contribute to local education and capacity and deliver lasting social, economic and environmental returns for both local communities and host governments.
