Social responsibility

Environmental efforts: One of our primary focuses of corporate social responsibility is the environment. Businesses regardless of size have a large carbon footprint. Any steps we can take to reduce those footprints are considered both good for STEP Oil & Gas and society as a whole.

Philanthropy: STEP Oil & Gas also practices social responsibility by donating to local charities. We make the best of our resources in order to benefit charities and local community programs.

Ethical labor practices: By treating employees fairly and ethically, STEP Oil & Gas also demonstrates our corporate social responsibility. This is especially important for us since we operate on an international level with labor laws that differ from country to country.

STEP Oil & Gas is at the vanguard of the promotion of CSR initiatives as we attach greater importance to the social and economic impact of our activities. Since the beginning of operations, we have implemented a greater level of engagement with our local communities ensuring corporate codes of conduct and social reporting, as well as the adoption of several key international CSR initiatives such as the Global Compact and the Global Reporting Initiative.

Hand in hand with major oil companies we have become advocates in the quest for renewable energy, and have accelerated efforts towards combating carbon dioxide emissions as part of our commitment to reducing the problem of global warming. Furthermore, a significant aspect of our CSR programme focus on initiating, funding, and implementing community development schemes meant to contribute towards an improved relationship with our host communities, as well as to demonstrate that STEP Oil & Gas is not oblivious of, or indifferent to the challenges and problems faced by the community.
