GEOLOG takes its corporate social responsibilities seriously and has a long-standing
commitment to advancing its policies and systems to ensure it addresses and monitors
all aspects of social responsibility that are relevant to its business.
The three main principles on which GEOLOG bases its commitment to social responsibility are:
As a company, and as individuals, we are a responsible corporate citizen, committed to compliance with all laws, regulations, client and company policies. At GEOLOG we value integrity, honesty, openness, personal excellence, ethical behaviour and mutual respect. We are committed to providing the highest level of service to our customers and hold ourselves accountable to our customers and employees by honoring our commitments and providing results. GEOLOG’s independence from other drilling and evaluation well services ensures it provides independent advice to its customers, regardless of the findings of our analysis – we tell the truth as we see it.
To ensure that social responsibility aspects of GEOLOG’s activity are taken into account, GEOLOG became an active member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) through which is committed with human rights, labour, environmental and anti-corruption principles
By investing in the neighbourhoods where we operate and by creating local jobs, GEOLOG is helping to develop prosperous, stable communities that are not only good places in which to do business, but also good places for our employees, their families and our neighbours to live. Additionally, through the GEOLOG Foundation
, we are focused on helping young children in the countries where we work. Recent efforts include working with a monastary in Angola in their support of the local disadvantaged community and donations from United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund - UNICEF in its defense, promotion and protection of children s rights around the world.
