2019 Sustainability Trainings
In 2019, supported and certified by the University of Edinburgh, the Sustainability & Governance Function alongside other facilitators organised a total of twelve (12) certified, classroom sustainability training programmes for Dangote Cement employees across diverse functions/departments, for our Nigerian operations in Obajana, Gboko, Ibese and Headquarters, as well as in Senegal and South Africa. Additionally, virtual training programmes were held for other African locations. The trainings and workshops focused on various sustainability topics, such as Circular Economy (Waste to Energy); Innovative Social Investments (Social Impact); Sustainability Management Systems; Corporate Social Responsibility (Employee Volunteerism); GRI Certified Standards training course; 'Women in Sustainability'; ISO 26000 (Social Responsibility) Lead Implementer and Lead Auditor; Sustainability Data Management and Building A Sustainable Transport Management System. In total, 249 employees with combined 2608 training hours undertook Sustainability trainings in 2019, with positive feedback on how their understanding of the importance of sustainability to business growth and longevity and their role in making it a corporate culture at Dangote Cement Plc, has been enhanced. Highlights of our training programmes usually include presentations by different workgroups on innovative measures that could be adopted to further enhance operational efficiency, cost savings, health & safety, community engagements, and environmental and social stewardship across Dangote Cement operations.
Dangote Sustainability Surveys - Employees, Communities, Investors
Dangote's value creation model aims at balancing the Company's responsibilities to its diverse stakeholders. We therefore make concerted efforts to "actively listen to stakeholders". In the year under review, we conducted Sustainability Materiality Assessment surveys to gain insights into the critical issues that are of concern to our stakeholders. The surveys covered the different regions of our operations and included investors, employees, and communities. The result of the surveys helped us to identify the main issues of concern and interest to our stakeholders, while also helping us determine the material topics for sustainability reporting. We deployed a robust and automated third-party data management tool for our 2019 Sustainability survey and materiality assessment. The online cloud-based solution allows our stakeholders to respond to survey questionnaires and submit responses from their respective locations, real-time, using devices such as laptops, tabs, and cell phones. This approach allowed for timely completion, guaranteed respondents' anonymity and confidentiality, and also eased the process of data collation and analysis.
