Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is deeply rooted within KIPAY’s culture.

As a long-term investor we are committed to develop and make lasting economic, social and environmental contributions to the societies in which we operate.

We work closely with and engage in partnerships with environmental and development experts. We undertake an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA), which complies with the World Bank’s Standards and national laws of DRC, prior to any investment decision.

Somwbe is located in a remote area in DRC. We recognise that power generation is a prerequisite for development, particularly in our area where modern power is in acute shortage.

During project assessment and construction, the company will work closely with local communities to understand their needs and help ensure that the projects deliver social benefits.

In addition to employ mainly local people at our site we will collaborate closely with local communities on programs designed to provide them with lasting social and economic benefits.

Kipay will contribute to the creation of employment and the socio-economic development of the surrounding communities
