- Advertisment -

Leading Indigenous Oil and Gas giants in the downstream sector, Oando Marketing Plc, have joined other top organisations as sponsors of the forthcoming Sustainability in the Extractive Industries (SITEI) 2014 Conference.

Announcing this during a recent visit to the corporate office of CSR-in-Action, the Head, Marketing Communications, Oando Downstream, Mr Seun Adeosun commended CSR-in-Action for the organisation of the event and expressed delight in Oando’s partnership with the non-profit body towards the successful hosting of the event.

Mr. Adeosun said that as an indigenous player and a believer in Nigeria and her people, Oando believes the conference, just as the selected theme ‘Local Content Participation, Transparency and Accountability,’ is timely. He added that it provides an opportunity for key stakeholders across the industries, policy makers, civil society and the communities to exchange ideas and best practices with a view to identifying effective strategies for improved development within the industries and local communities.

“At Oando we believe in partnerships that work and we are glad to sponsor this event, as CSR-in-Action has organised this conference to gather stakeholders to address issues within the Extractive industries,” he said.

Responding, Ms Bekeme Masade, Executive Director, CSR-in-Action thanked Oando Downstream for its support and reiterated the commitment of her organisation to successfully host the all-inclusive conference. The CiA Director seized the opportunity of the visit to formally present the organisation’s The Collective Social Investment Report (CSIR), which ranks businesses using the first ever ranking methodology in the nation and indeed the region, the CSR-in-Action Corporate Citizenship Index (3C-index).

The eagerly anticipated Sustainability in the Extractive Industries (SITEI) 2014 Conference is the third in a series and is scheduled to hold on October 24 at Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos. Confirmed speakers Cross River State Governor, His Excellency, Senator Liyel Imoke; the CEO of Oando Downstream, Yomi Awobokun; Country Director, Empretech Foundation, Owanari Duke; Managing Partner of Zenera Consulting Limited, Meka Olowola, amongst several notable dignitaries.
