KAMPALA, UGANDA, 17th APRIL 2019 – At UNOC, we understand that the success and sustainability of our businesses depends on the social licenses we obtain from local communities to operate and prosper in our business activities.

We are developing a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy to ensure we deliver strategic programmes and initiatives which develop longer-term relationships with local communities.

As a values-led Company, our CSR programme is founded upon our values. Every day, our people and business are guided by the following core values:

  • Safety First.
  • Concern for the Environment.
  • Continuous Improvement.
  • Teamwork.
  • Innovation.
  • People-oriented.

Our Approach

CSR is fully integrated into UNOC’s core work. We support a broad range of CSR programmes and initiatives, all intended to work towards our overarching CSR priorities.

The focus and prioritisation of our CSR is rooted in an understanding of the specific needs and opportunities of our local area, to ensure maximum positive impact for our business and our communities.

Our CSR team will deliver activities relating to:

  • Health, Safety and Environment.
  • Community Engagement.
  • Collaboration and Partnerships.

Our CSR strategy consciously moves the Company’s activities away from one-off donations towards sustainable partnerships, community engagement and longer-term initiatives.

UNOC emphasises programmes and supporting activities that forge partnerships, as opposed to merely making a financial donation to a single fund or event that would only have short term benefit for one or a limited number of people.

By developing and effectively implementing sustainable programmes and initiatives, UNOC develops longer-term relationships with local communities, which in turn ensures a stable operating environment for our businesses. Ends…/
