NATIONAL CONTENT & COMMUNITIES
SUPPORTING LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT
In spite of a deteriorated business environment, we remain committed to our corporate value of “encouraging a fair return for all” through our local engagement.
PROMOTING LOCAL EMPLOYMENT
Through its global operational footprint, Technip has always focused on local employability. For us, national content goes far beyond compliance with local regulations. In 2015, 80.1% of Technip employees were nationals and 83.8% of staff in management positions were nationals.
DEVELOPING NATIONAL TALENT
We invest in maturing local talent pipelines. In 2015, we continued to work closely with universities in several countries to train new engineers and technicians. In Ghana, two memoranda of understanding were signed with Regional Maritime University (RMU) and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST).
BUILDING LOCAL SUPPLIER ECOSYSTEMS
We require all local suppliers and subcontractors to comply with the United Nations Global Compact and we regularly monitor their compliance.
As part of the improvement of the procurement practices, we strive to source locally, while maintaining the highest quality standards and availability of strategic equipment and raw materials. In 2015, 51% (approximately €1.87 billion) of Technip’s overall procurement expenditure was sourced in the same country of purchase.
INVESTING IN COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
We take a long-term approach to local community involvement by donating to public health and education institutions, as well as supporting initiatives in children’s health and education, adult employment and environmental protection.
In India, Technip launched in 2015 the “Seed of Hope” program to crowdsource social innovation with employees. Two projects identified by the program were completed in 2015. The first one supported the education of 98 orphan students. The second improved water quality and kitchen facilities at an orphanage.
In 2015, almost 200 initiatives involving 3,500 individual volunteering actions reached more than 5,000 members of the local communities in 33 countries. 34% of the initiatives are long-term, having started before and continuing after 2015. Technip contributed to almost €1.4 million to them.
We provide humanitarian assistance in many different countries through the Technip Relief & Development Fund and employee-volunteer initiatives, in coordination with organizations such as the Red Cross/Red Crescent.
PROTECTING HUMAN RIGHTS
We carefully make sure that Human Rights are respected in our organization, in the course of our operations and in our supply chain. In 2015, all our entities formally declared their respect for the International Labour Organization (ILO) Fundamental Conventions. In addition, our employees are regularly trained on ethics and compliance issues.
We require all our suppliers and subcontractors to respect and to fully agree to our values. The Global Compact principles and Technip’s values are contractual commitments.
