Delivering impact through HSES standards
We operate in a complex developing world that is subject to diverse economic, societal, financial, environmental and political drivers. Our challenge is to combat poverty in the poorest and most fragile countries through pioneering infrastructure and assuring project delivery excellence, while effectively managing the HSES impacts associated with such infrastructure development projects. This HSES implementation strategy responds to these demands and is integral to the short, medium and long-term PIDG HSES management system success.
The overall strategy is to drive a Health, Safety, Environmental and Social Framework aligned to the IFC performance standards and an assurance system that monitors and reports HSES performance within PIDG and to our Owners. This includes the continued development of a fit for purpose Health, Safety, Environmental and Social Management System (HSES-MS) to support the planned growth and reach of PIDG projects in the coming years.
We will uphold high standards of HSES governance and have robust risk management processes in place and ensure that all critical HSES activities are identified and subsequently managed to reduce the overall risk to as low as reasonably practicable. Through these high standards we will embed and deliver impact.
We uphold a strong focus on developing safe working environments for all our stakeholders, including employees, partners, contractors and the communities we operate within. We will ensure that we work responsibly and support the UN Global Goals. This means delivering infrastructure value in a secure, environmentally and socially responsible manner; and we are committed to delivering and demonstrating HSES performance and continuously improve through annual PIDG HSES reporting.
