Dalbit has an ethical, responsible and sustainable business framework that ensures delivery of our commitments to all our stakeholders.
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)
Dalbit is a member of the Janus Continental Group (JCG), a group comprised of market-leading companies in the Energy, Real Estate, Conservation and Hospitality sectors. At Dalbit, we are constantly deepening the alignment of our operations behind our Group’s mission, while considering our outward impact on, and the operational risks presented by, environmental, social and governance factors.
JCG is led by a Board which is responsible and accountable for the long-term success, reputation and governance of the Company. The Board is responsible for leading and controlling the Company in accordance with the terms of reference outlined in its Board Charter and for meeting all legal and regulatory requirements. It is committed to upholding the highest governance standards in the performance of these duties.
We take a cohesive, consistent and transparent approach to delivering a safe and progressive workplace by providing employees with professional and well-informed advice, guidance and support through our Code of Business Conduct framework. We operate an ethical, values-driven culture and aim to be a leading company in how we support employee health, well-being and personal development.
We are each responsible for advancing an inclusive environment, giving back to the community and ensuring a sustainable future for all. Our CSR projects commit both financial and human resource to health, education and conservation initiatives across the countries in we operate in.
As a company with businesses in the energy sector, the energy transition represents more than the critical environmental goals we must collectively meet. It represents an urgent social need to ensure equitable access to reliable energy solutions and the infrastructure to deliver it. This is how we will drive a more sustainable future across Africa.
We are building cleaner energy generation capacity, as well as investing in the infrastructure to help underserved communities to draw from it, ensuring that nobody in Africa is left behind as the global transition accelerates.
Our investment in lower carbon solutions, from liquid natural gas (LNG) to photovoltaic solar solutions and battery technology to harness renewable energy will contribute to a crucial rebalancing of energy sources.
This transition will not happen overnight. As we pursue our mission to advance impact every day, we do so while recognising and responding to the complexities associated with achieving an inclusive global energy transition that protects and unlocks the great potential of Africa and its diverse people.
We owe future generations a better world than we found it. Dalbit continues to play a key role in supporting government efforts to combat climate change by supporting the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy's forest restoration and wildlife rehabilitation programs.
Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy
The main objective of the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy is the rehabilitation of the critically endangered Mountain Bongo antelope through breeding genetically diverse and healthy Bongos for reintroduction to their natural habitats.
In 2022, the Dalbit team, along with the local community and stakeholders planted 1,000 trees at Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy as part of their environmental conservation efforts aimed at preserving the world’s first Mountain Bongo sanctuary.
The Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy also runs an animal orphanage and an education program that introduces young learners to the world of conservation. The animal orphanage hosts over 10,000 students every year.
In its work, the Conservancy partners closely with the National Bongo Taskforce Committee, the Kenya Wildlife Service, Kenya Forest Service, schools and the local community.
Healthy communities grow and prosper. We support local hospitals within the communities we operate in by donating medical equipment and supplies as well as supporting their primary health care initiatives and infrastructure needs.
Donation of Medical Equipment to CURE International
JCG donated US$437,500 to CURE International to support efforts to step-up the supply of medical equipment, including PPE, ventilators and PCR machines in Kenya, Zambia, Uganda and Mozambique as they work to manage the spread of Covid-19 and continue to carry out their service to the community safely.
Education remains the most transformative tool for children's development to unlock their potential. We believe in investing in the future of young people. We support this objective through initiatives such as building schools, upgrading educational facilities, donating equipment, and providing scholarships.
Donation towards construction of a new science laboratory at Alliance Girls High School
Dalbit has donated KES 3 Million to Alliance Girls High School to shore aid the teaching of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects for the over 2,300 girls at the school.
The donation will go towards the construction of a new science laboratory so that young girls at the school who wish to pursue STEM subjects to a higher level are adequately supported and empowered to do so. The evolving education landscape in Kenya now demands 100% absorption of qualified students and this has put a strain on resources like laboratories and dormitories.
We work with our communities to improve their quality of life by supporting local initiatives such as road safety campaigns, donations of vital equipment to the police and engaging in other community-building projects.
Support to the Kenya Red Cross in 2017
More than two million Kenyans faced famine in early 2017. Dalbit responded to a call by the Kenya Red Cross that was raising funds to feed the affected with a donation of US $60,000.
