Executive Management Statement for UNGC

As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, we confirm our commitment to support the UN Global Compact universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.

We acknowledge the importance of corporate responsibility (CR) as it influences operating principles and guides our commitment to conducting business ethically, engage our employees, and protect the environment.

Our CR strategy is about creating value for people, communities, and increasing the impact of our activities. We are committed to building and promoting ethical values and behavior throughout our business and in addition, exert influence and share knowledge with contractors and partners to implement adequate policies and procedures that promote best practice to prevent bribery and promote ethical standards throughout our supply chain.

MPRL E&P, in working towards achieving our mission to be the leading oil and gas company in the country, acknowledges the importance of working responsibly and therefore embed the UNGC principles in our practices.

We are committed to comprehensively understanding the topics relevant to our business operations and significant to our stakeholders. This ongoing endeavor enables us to grasp potential risks, opportunities, and impacts on the economy, environment, and people, including considerations related to human rights, stemming from our planned and ongoing activities.

Since its initiation in FY 2019-2020, our formal materiality assessment, overseen by an independent third party, has identified 11 themes pertinent to the upstream energy industry and MPRL E&P’s operations within the domestic business landscape. In 2022, our updated assessment revealed two additional material topics: economic performance and diversity and inclusion.

The sustained emphasis on health, safety, and wellbeing as a material topic underscores the inherent nature of our business and operational endeavors, as well as our steadfast dedication to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our workforce. Additionally, we acknowledge the significance of engaging with the communities in the areas where we operate. We continue to collaborate with and learn from the host communities in Mann Field, striving together to achieve mutual prosperity.
