Environmental, Social and Governance
Lekela is committed to upholding the very highest environmental, social and business integrity standards and ensuring we leave a lasting, positive legacy in communities where we invest.
To achieve this, we have set a clear environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy for the group and have developed an ESG framework including relevant policies and procedures to guide all our investments.
- We continuously engage openly and transparently with the communities where we invest, addressing issues that impact on our ‘social licence’ to operate.
- We are committed to community investment to create shared value in our projects.
- We hold our contractors and subcontractors to the highest Environmental, Social and Governance standards.
- We uphold the highest business integrity standards within our group and require the same from our contractors and business partners.
- Lekela is a signatory to the UN Compact.
Providing electricity to African countries is only part of our equation for success. We put the long-term prosperity of the local communities where we operate at the centre of our strategy.
On every project we develop and operate, we aim to make a positive impact that lasts for generations in these communities. As well as the provision of power itself, and the employment opportunities we create, Lekela builds programmes focused on:
- Environmental initiatives
These programmes are integrated to our power projects from day one and managed by a dedicated Lekela employee. They might seek to address a local skills gap, create or revive a sustainable livelihood, or tackle an environmental challenge like soil degradation.
