Developing and investing in clean energy projects globally as core business, SWGT and our partners take social responsibilities as enterprises’ top priority. We aim to create long-term value for our shareholders, partners and society by helping to meet growing energy demand in a safe and responsible way.
Safety and security:
Safety is our number one priority and a core value. Our aim is to have no accidents, no harm to people and no damage to the environment. SWGT and our partners are working to continuously embed and improve personal and process safety and operational risk management across the firm and to strengthen our safety management. Our approach builds on our experience, including learning from incidents, operations audits, annual risk reviews and sharing lessons learned with our industry peers.
The world needs more energy but with fewer carbon emissions. SWGT and our partners are playing an active role in meeting this dual challenge. By advancing solar and wind energy investment, optimising with battery storage technology, and converting waste to energy, we are dedicated to making every effort on energy efficiency and lower carbon solutions.
Managing our impacts:
We work hard to avoid, mitigate and manage our environmental and social impacts over the life of our operations. The way our businesses around the world understand and manage their environmental and social impacts is set out in our operating management system. This includes requirements on engaging with stakeholders who may be affected by our activities. In planning our projects, we identify potential impacts from our activities in areas such as land rights, water use and protected areas. We use the results of this analysis to identify actions and mitigation measures and implement these in project design, construction and operations.
Value to society:
We aim to have a positive and enduring impact on the communities in which we operate. In supplying energy, we contribute to economies around the world by employing local staff, helping to develop national and local suppliers, and through the funds we pay to governments from taxes and other agreements. Additionally, our social investments support community efforts to increase incomes and improve standards of living.
Human rights and ethical conduct:
We are committed to respecting the rights and dignity of all people when conducting our business. Our success depends on the wholehearted contribution of a talented and diverse workforce. Our industry relies on creative and scientific thinking to solve some of the world’s biggest energy problems. We focus on attracting and developing innovative and capable individuals, while also maintaining safe and reliable operations. We are committed to conducting our business in an ethical, transparent way, using our values and code of conduct to guide us.
