Corporate Social Responsibility

A Multi-Facetted Corporate Social Responsibility Action Programme

Zhaikmunai’s stepwise development over the years and its substantial combined production of crude oil and specialised products (stabilised condensate, LPG and dry gas) from the Gas Treatment Facility (GTF) has, in the last couple of years, created economic growth, an increasing presence and influence on the local and regional community as well as an increasing environmental footprint. In becoming a stable and sustainable E & P figure in the area, Zhaikmunai also has taken on a new role, i.e. that of playing an increasing role in society as a whole.

A Multi-Facetted Corporate Social Responsibility Action ProgrammeCorporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is, according to the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.

In short, the goal of CSR is to embrace responsibility for Zhaikmunai’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on its numerous stakeholders, i.e. investors, business partners, regulators, employees, customers, local communities, the environment and society at large. CSR is also the deliberate inclusion of public interest into Zhaikmunai’s core business decision-making and the honouring of a triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit.

Over the years, Zhaikmunai has been working on the following CSR key components: ethics and governance, employees, communities and environment.
