Corporate Social Responsibility

Gorine's Corporate Social Responsibility/Community Relations Strategy is hinged on one cardinal principle - to improve the quality of life, and be a catalyst for development and social change within and beyond our areas of operation. In doing this, we continually strive:

  • To be the catalyst for socio-economic change as stakeholders in the community
  • To build capacity as a means for self reliance and economic empowerment
  • To entrench and foster the principle of sustainable development
  • To contribute in building a stable and enduring future for our host communities

We treat the host communities as an extension of our business in terms of needs and aspirations; this gives the communities a sense of belonging as stakeholders in our business and operations. Our overall engagement covers the following broad areas: Youth empowerment; projecting and promoting a greener, renewable and sustainable environment. In this regard, we partner with organisations like the Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) to deliver on our promise.

Activities:

In addition to its commercial business activities, the group engages in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes through which it intervenes strategically in key areas of youth empowerment and promoting and sustaining a renewable and greener environment. The group employs over 800 staff worldwide. Chrome Group is also a non-racial and equal opportunity employer.
