Context

Aggreko is fortunate to work in a wide variety of countries and our social contribution is one way of giving back to the community. It’s about supporting the communities in which we work, whilst being respectful of different cultures.

Our Approach

Each year, Aggreko engages in a number of initiatives which support the communities in which we work.

During 2016, we contributed to a range of charitable, community and disaster relief organisations. Our policy encourages employees to support local initiatives, particularly those relating to children’s welfare, education and social health projects, and is based on giving donations to many organisations which are involved with the communities in which we work.

During the year, we also undertook an audit of our community investment and we have identified a number of areas for improvement. A community investment strategy is being developed for implementation in 2017.

Community Investment

We actively engage in supporting the local communities we work in and we do this in a number of ways. We are proactive in recruiting locally from the community; for example, in Myingyan in Myanmar, 77% of the workforce is comprised of local staff.

We provide extensive on-the-job training for new recruits and give them the skills to become technicians. We also get the benefit of highly skilled staff, trained on our own equipment.

This helps us build relationships in the local community which are very important when we might be operating a contract for a number of years.

Our charitable donations are largely focused on the education and wellbeing of children.
