Going beyond energy to invest in communities for 20 years
With every project we build, we go beyond energy, investing in the community to build a lasting positive impact and social dividend. Our projects last for over 20 years, making us long-term residents in the communities where we operate.
As well as creating employment opportunities, especially during construction, we invest in initiatives that create a lasting social dividend in these communities. Our projects seek to improve local education, develop local enterprise and protect the local environment.
These initiatives address skills gaps, create or revive sustainable livelihoods, and tackle pressing issues like soil degradation. We invest money each and every year during our 20-year project lifecycles and assign a dedicated Lekela employee for this role. They work in and with the community to ensure we achieve our goals.
