Wherever in the world we work, we want to be a contributing member of the local community. We recognise that our success is not built in isolation but rather with the support of these communities.
We believe it's crucial to develop a strategy that ensures our engagement with the needs of the communities we serve. A strategy that focuses on sharing value by uniting our purpose with the development priorities of local stakeholders.
We’re lifting the communities where we operate by employing local people and local suppliers, educating the next generation of talent, and providing donations and community development.
As a testament, we've achieved our local content goals across various countries with outstanding ICV results. We've already been giving back to the communities through donations and sunshine days to support local causes across the world. Additionally, through initiatives like our Kent Graduate Programme, we’re ensuring the next generation of talent is ready to tackle the greatest challenge of our time.
Under the leadership of Matthew Bishop, our SVP of Operations MEA, we’re working on creating a positive cycle of growth and mutual trust that ultimately drives meaningful change in our local communities.
Throughout 2023, we are committed to:
