AES Group has been involved in CSR programs in Africa for many years. The CSR programs provided through the BTL project in Ukunda are a good example of the group’s capabilities in assisting the communities while creating a strong support and building trust.
We have the best expert for Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) available, mainly with a background and experience from the Oil and Gas industry. We are able to provide the project with the most comprehensive policies in compliance with international standards.
AES has generations of local experience with almost every tribe in Kenya and to an extent also in East Africa giving us huge experience in identifying the right people for the job.
Our cost effective integrated facilities management solutions, ranging from camp maintenance, waste and water management are in accordance with relevant local and international environmental regulations.
Part of AES training scheme will include the development of local tendering processes which will contribute to the overall sharing and fairness of the project as well as drive communities away from fraud and corruption.
We consider the training importance in our activity as an East African company to providing training and support to the local communities. For every project we have a program that includes the local support covering medical support, educational support and employment / training plan of the local teams.
AES is proud to be one of the most compliant in Corporate Social Responsibility planning. We are assisting other companies and associations in planning the corporate social responsibility.
One of the most important aspects of a successful project in Africa will be the coordination with the local community. Not engaging the community properly in recruitment, procurement and support can lead to major delays in project execution.
