Corporate Social Responsibility

Zenith attaches great importance to making a positive, beneficial impact on local communities and environments across its operational footprint

Community Engagement

This approach can be seen in Zenith’s operations in the Imishli area of Azerbaijan where Zenith is the second largest employer. The Company has stimulated the local economy by employing approximately 200 people in areas including transportation, civil construction, oilfield operations and office administration.

A number of internally displaced persons living within Zenith’s contract area in Azerbaijan are provided with electricity by the electrical power station installed by the Company. Local farms and large agricultural areas are also provided with water using water pumps owned and serviced by Zenith. In addition, the Company’s oilfield firefighting team provides immediate emergency response to the surrounding areas as well as supporting local emergency services.

Zenith is evaluating a number of ways towards improving local infrastructure, including the construction of a new canteen for its staff and road repair work within the REDPSA area. These efforts will benefit the Company’s operations as well as the welfare of local communities.

The Company recognises its very important responsibility towards its host countries and considers this as a primary ingredient for the success of its operations. Zenith will always work in close partnership with local and national levels of government, and act in accordance with the host country’s energy development programme.

The Company will always operate with a strong commitment towards environmental sustainability and responsibility.

Where Zenith has a working interest in a project, but is not the operating company, the Company will seek to ensure that the operators enforce all applicable health and safety regulations.

It is the responsibility of all of Zenith directors, managers, field personnel and consultants to comply with this Policy.

Training

Zenith will ensure that competent personnel, the correct equipment, as well as the appropriate standards and procedures are available to meet the required health and safety standards. Where necessary, the appropriate training will be provided to ensure health and safety standards can be effectively maintained.
