Social, environmental and economic sustainability is at the heart of our work.
AEMP is your business partner in bringing energy solutions that contribute to sustainable development in Africa.
We are committed to the highest international standards for safety and technological innovation and economic as well as social performance, and contribute to strengthening our clients’ Social License to Operate (SLO) at local and national levels.
We create long-term value for investors by identifying and managing environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities.
AEMP uses The Equator Principles as the financial industry benchmark as well as other relevant investors’ principles for determining, assessing and managing environmental and social risk in projects. The management team's profile and experience ensures sensitivity to regional and cultural issues, with a tailored approach to implementing The Principles for each investment as per the guidelines.
Our partnership-based approach
In addition to the Projects’ economic and financial rationale, AEMP will seek to create shared value for the client as well as other key stakeholders by maximizing the Project’s economic, social and environmental impact through:
Local employment and training of local workforce - the Project will create direct and indirect employment opportunities, during both the construction and operating phases.
Local purchase of goods and services will be maximised, including upskilling and empowering local professionals.
Affording the client the opportunity to become a shareholder in the project through its foundation, employee pension scheme or other relevant structure.
A portion of the Project revenues will be invested in local social and economic projects, in alignment with the client’s social sustainability strategy. This could include improving access to electricity for social infrastructure built by the client.
Through a PPP with public funders, which AEMP is able to help mobilise, the project could be extended to neighbouring communities to extend its social and economic benefits.
It is also expected that the project could help stimulate the local economy, and create a basis for developing renewable energy for other users in the area.
