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.

 

Community Investment

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:

  • Education
  • Enterprise
  • 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.
