Ivan Oil & Gas recognizes it has a responsibility to protect human rights in both its external and internal business environment. This is the basis of the company's commitment to corporate social responsibility. The company is committed to the continuous improvement of its performance in this area.
The scope of our policy includes the rights of our employees - their health and safety as well as their security arrangements and working conditions; and the development rights of our external stakeholders, in particular local communities. We believe that the right to development is a basic right, without which other human rights cannot be secured or sustained. It is therefore our policy to make a positive difference through supporting programs of social investment, in partnership with professional social development organizations, government agencies and local non-governmental agencies that contribute to sustainable development goals in the communities and countries where we operate.
Stakeholder Dialogue and Social Reporting
We are always willing to enter into dialogue, and have developed a program of engagement with different stakeholders in order to develop a greater understanding of their concerns about the impacts of our operations. The results of dialogue with stakeholders influence directly how we benchmark, evaluate and report on our social performance over time.
We understand that local, social, political and cultural conditions may present challenges for immediately conforming to international standards on the part of our business partners. We will look for evidence of their commitment to working towards such standards, and will withdraw from relationships where no positive progress is made over time.
Business Integrity Policy
Integrity, honesty and fairness are fundamental to the way we conduct our business. Bribery is unacceptable in any form. Ivan Oil & Gas staff should avoid accepting hospitality or gifts that might appear to place them under an obligation. All business transactions must be properly recorded and accounted for. We expect the same ethical standards to be applied in all our business relationships in all areas of operation and will promote our Business Principles with all our business associates.
Employment Policy & Social Justice in the Workplace
We aim to provide our staff with safe working conditions as well as just and competitive conditions and terms of employment. This means respect for the individual, regardless of ethnic origin, creed, age or gender. We are an equal opportunities employer. We try to recruit, train and promote from within the places of operation. We respect the right of individual employees to join a legitimate trade union. Through training and appraisal, we encourage staff to develop their own professional skills to the mutual advantage of both the individual and company.
Compliance & Proactive Engagement Strategy
In all its operations, the company will always comply with local laws and regulatory requirements, and make representations to the relevant authorities if it believes that policies and practices of host governments undermine our Business Principles. We will undertake environmental and social impact assessments prior to undertaking any new investment and evaluate these impacts regularly to ensure that they are responsibly managed on an ongoing basis. We expect our contractors, suppliers, joint venture and alliance partners to respect our Business Principles. Their concurrence with these principles is an important factor in our decision to form or remain in a relationship with them
Communication & Reporting Strategy
First, we are committed to open dialogue on an ongoing basis, with all our stakeholders - both internal and external. As a company, we recognize that our activities and operations are a legitimate subject for public scrutiny, and we are keen to take an active part in any debate they may cause. Second, we will audit our financial, environmental and social performance on a regular basis, report to our stakeholders annually and subject our reporting to verification and evaluation with the objective of continuous improvement.
Sustainable Development Policy
It is our policy to make a difference through supporting programs of social investment, in partnership with professional social development organizations, government agencies and local non-governmental organizations that contribute to the sustainable development goals of the communities and countries where we operate. It is our policy that all our business activities will be undertaken in accordance with our Business Principles so that they contribute to sustainable development goals and do not detract from them.
Principles & PoliciesWe are judged by how we act, both as a company and as individual representatives of the company. Our Business Principles provide an ethical framework for our activities and define the behaviors that are acceptable in the pursuit of our objectives.
Our purpose is to provide oil and gas services efficiently, responsibly and profitably. More specifically, we specialize in carrying out these activities in an emerging nation where both the risks and the rewards may be greater.
Principles of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
We recognize that we have a Corporate Social Responsibility towards a diverse group of stakeholders that includes shareholders, customers and business associates, employees, business partners, local communities and society at large, including those special interest groups that represent public interest concerns, such as NGOs and Labour union. Investment decisions will take account of economic, environmental and social impacts and their management.
The interests of shareholders will not necessarily take precedence over the interests of other stakeholder groups and our business strategy is designed to promote social justice in the workplace and in our external relationships in places where we operate.
Health, Safety, Environment and Security Policy
We recognize our responsibility to operate with proper regard for the environment and for the health and safety of people who may be affected, directly or indirectly, by our operations. Our Environmental Policy is designed to ensure that every employee shares responsibility for the environment. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, we systematically monitor our performance in these areas. Our objective is to maintain a high degree of excellence in respect of all HSE issues, including emergency preparedness.

Human Rights Policy
The Ivan Oil Human Rights Policy is based on the fundamental rights pronounced in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and is guided by those rights enshrined in the core labour conventions of the International Labour Organization. These rights are to be protected and promoted throughout Ivan Oil’s line of business operations and in our relations with both business and local community partners. The scope of our policy includes the rights of our employees - their health and safety as well as their security arrangements and working conditions; and the development rights of our external stakeholders, in particular local communities. We will also use our legitimate influence to promote human rights outside of our areas of operation.
