Our sustainability story
Our story began in 2011, as we conceptualized and designed our first plant which was commissioned in 2015. We realized that one of the keys to the success of the project was ensuring that our stakeholders; workers and local residents, were supported throughout the course of the project. As the ﬁrst large scale energy plant construction project in the Lekki area, it garnered a great deal of attention from the community. The project was a huge success, not because of our project management skills but because we continuously focused on a wide range of initiatives to provide efficient service to residents with our principal aim of realizing sustainable development in the area. Our CSR initiatives and programs serve as the support system behind how Viathan operates, especially our commitment to a sustainable energy future which is one of our core values.
We understand that achieving our major goal of providing power to those who need it the most can only be made possible through the collective efforts of everyone who works at VIATHAN, our partners, suppliers, the government, local communities and other stakeholders. Without them; we would not be who we are today.
Corporate Governance & Business Ethics
Compliance with all applicable legislation, laws, regulations, standards and codes is an essential characteristic of our organizational culture. We are committed to conducting business in line with best practices. The Board monitors compliance with these by means of management reports, which include information on any significant interaction with key stakeholders including the Company’s regulatory stakeholders. As an organization we comply with all guidelines related to our operations and international best practices.
Impact on our Communities
