Our membership with AAMEG

Some of the key challenges associated with investing and operating in the countries of Africa relate to governance, security, bribery and corruption, capacity building, human rights, social and environmental issues.

  • Contribute to the social, economic and institutional development of the communities in which we operate
  • Implement effective and transparent engagement, communication and independently verified reporting arrangements with our stakeholders
