At Aiteo it's not just what we do that matters – it's how we get the job done. Delivering safe and reliable energy in a socially responsible manner makes good business sense. it's how we earn our social licence to operate and grow our business.
Our stakeholders have diverse issues, interests and backgrounds, and we strive to deal with them fairly and openly. We consult in various ways, including community forums, welcome feedback, track public complaints and follow up in a timely manner.
When Aiteo operates on or near traditional lands of the Niger Delta people, considering that we are part of them, we seek their input and share economic benefits through employment opportunities, targeted training programmes and by supporting local businesses. We also provide training to our employees and contractors, who are largely of African heritage, in how to responsibly deal with host communities
Investing in Communities
Aiteo is committed to giving back to the communities where we operate. We do so through our corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy, based on three elements:
Giving – Aiteo makes donations annually to churches, registered charities and not-for-profit charitable organizations. We also become involved in various social investment projects. Our core funding areas are in: education; creating political awareness and improving governance; arts and culture; and community development.
Educating – Aiteo is committed to promoting the study of engineering in the communities within which we operate. We are committed to providing scholarships annually for higher-level education.
By supporting our local communities, we believe we are able to empower individuals to become more fully involved in civic duties, business roles and government; engage in personal development through an interest in the arts, charity and welfare; and encourage others to excel in their careers, or to pursue educational opportunities they may previously have missed.
