DISSEMINATING A CULTURE OF BUSINESS INTEGRITY IN NIGERIA
Saipem has been working to disseminate a culture of business ethics and integrity in Nigeria. In line with Saipem values and UN Global Compact principles, we have been working with the UN Global Compact Network in Nigeria to promote the dissemination of a business ethics and integrity culture through the launch of the ‘Leading by Ethics Campaign’. As a matter of fact, we launched it at the end of 2016 and during 2017 we carried out specific training initiatives as part of this campaign for our employees and vendors in Nigeria. Then, to strengthen the message and to reach more local stakeholders, our Company, along with the UN Global Compact, organised a workshop that also involved local companies and NGOs. As part of this campaign, attendees participated in the ‘Leading by ethics’ training session and watched the ‘Leading by ethics’ video.
Partnering at the local level with such a prestigious global partner helped us spread our message, values and principles.
EXTERNAL COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS
Increased effort in ‘technology scouting’ is planned to explore the breadth of opportunities offered by cross-industry cooperation. Creating alliances to be receptive to crossover technologies from aerospace and defence, automotive, IT, telecoms and biomedical, etc., is a key step.
Saipem has always displayed a cooperative attitude, leveraging on a broad network of technology suppliers, universities, research centres, university spin-offs, start-ups, commercial partners.
