Our approach to stakeholder engagement can be summed up in a single concept, corporate citizenship, and it is with this mindset that we approach community development. With a focus on sustainable investments, developed and implemented in close collaboration with our host communities, Ambatovy endeavors to leave a lasting positive legacy for local communities, which is why helping to catalyze the development of sustainable communities is so important to us. Our goal is to establish longstanding relationships with our communities in order to improve their economic and social living conditions while also supporting the United Nation’s SDGs and living our commitment to being a champion of responsible sourcing.
Our Communities and Social Relations program focuses primarily on livelihoods development, the implementation of projects supported through the Social Investment Fund (SIF), community health and safety, work with resettled families, community engagement and cultural heritage. In order to ensure that our projects are truly sustainable, we collaborate very closely with the Government and local leaders, NGOs, associations and community members for all of our program initiatives.
