Petrofac’s social performance standard requires that our social investment programmes are built on credible and authorative social assessments.
These assessments, involve discussions with local stakeholders and will identify social risks and impacts in each country. Following a social assessment, we aim to create tailored social investment plans for the communities we operate in, based on their priorities and needs.
Our contribution and the long-term impacts of our projects, are measured using the London Benchmark Group Investment Tool. During 2012, we invested more than US$1 million in social projects; our support included:
- providing business start-up training, supporting environmental clean-ups and funding urgent road safety improvements in Tunisia
- refurbishing community centres, schools and leisure facilities in Mexico
