CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Senwes’ CSI-vision is to be a responsible corporate citizen that contributes to the sustainable development of communities and society as a whole.

Committed to the National Development Plan, the Senwes Group aligns its initiatives with government’s development priorities. We are passionate about contributing to the sustainable development of the rural areas, especially in the areas where the Senwes Group conducts business.

Senwes is committed to the creation of shareholder value, the sustainability of which is based on how we conduct our business, how we support our customers with integrated solutions, how we treat our employees, the environment and the communities in which we operate.

Senwes relies on various forms of capital to achieve set targets and goals. These capitals, as identified by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), can be seen as inputs to the company’s business model and increase, decrease or transform according to the activities of the company.
