SEEP Roll Out

Background

Resource extraction continues to fund the growth of many economies in the world today, including Nigeria. Unfortunately, the extractive industries have been bogged down with issues of human rights violations, violence, financial misappropriation and mismanagement and a host of other issues, such that it has been difficult to translate the financial growth with any sort of development.

In 2015, the 4th SITEI conference saw the birth of a post-conference Friends of SITEI Working Group dedicated to seeing that the recommendations made at the conference would be implemented accordingly. The result of this being - Sustainable Extractive and Energy accountability and responsibility, by incorporating sustainable business strategies into organisations’ operations.

The Sustainable Extractive & Energy (SEE) Principles (aka SEEP) are a set of principles established primarily for the Nigerian and then the African markets. In line with internationally recognised frameworks including Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations Global Compact and the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 Guidelines.

Consequently, it is expected that SEEP will be adopted by the Federal and State Governments and will be cascaded through stakeholder engagements at public, private and especially communities using education and awareness generation on human rights, right to inclusive communities and financial inclusion.


Our Mandate

CSR-in-Action is looking to work with thought leaders in the extractive industries to roll-out SEEP in their various host communities. This would ensure business long term profitability, hinged on responsible and ethical practices, and facilitate cohesion across key stakeholders.

For organisations that are looking to roll-out SEEP in their host communities or want to find out more about SEEP, please contact us on SEEP@csr-in-action.org.
