At Hitco Petroleum, our mission is to create a work environment in which the host communities and the company become fundamentally interdependent. This is done with a mutual understanding and commitment to growth and development. Our commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is based on the following objectives:
- Integrated planning and execution of community development programs, with full community input and participation
- Sustainable empowerment of the indigenous host communities through the provision of employment and improved social welfare
- Adoption of best practices that guarantee community-friendly operations.
We value sustainable and mutual growth together with the local communities where we actually operate. We have actively engaged in community-based activities that contribute to society, offering support both materially and morally.
Hosting a youth development program, actively participating in local traditional events, and sponsoring local professional sports teams are just some examples. Most importantly, we aspire to social development which enhances mutual prosperity in the local community through our sound and stable business activities.
We are determined to contribute to benefits for the whole society through our business activities and products, and to carry out initiatives in Zambia and all other communities where we operate, whereby we pursue the greater trust and support of the community.
