By empowering people with energy, we create shared value to improve the lives of Tanzania and its citizens. Through our focus on long-term sustainable growth, environmental performance, and good governance, we are improving outcomes for our stakeholders.
Our approach is aligned with industry leading standards, including our partnership with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC):
Targeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals
We take proactive steps to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We focus on making a meaningful contribution to the areas where we are positioned to make the largest impact.

Sustainability Report 2020
In this, our first sustainability report, we describe our environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and progress in 2020.
Strong governance built on an ethical and transparent culture is central to how we operate. We focus on putting health and safety first, and building an ethical culture rooted in the principles of accountability and transparency.
Health & safety
We are committed to achieving excellent health and safety standards, to reduce accidents and ill health within the workplace and to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment.
We work to the highest ethical standards and aim to be transparent in our dealings with national, regional and local authorities and partners.
Through our operations we are delivering outcomes that create a lasting social impact and improve the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in Tanzania. We also work hard to ensure we are engaging effectively with all our stakeholders, building a secure workforce to help our people thrive and supporting the communities surrounding our operations.
Engagement with our diverse range of stakeholders has always been a priority for the business, ensuring that our strategic objectives are understood and we receive regular feedback on them via a consistent dialogue.
Wentworth Africa Foundation
Wentworth Africa Foundation is a charitable foundation existing to facilitate projects that build the skills, health and experiences of those living in the communities we partner with.
As a Tanzanian business, we provide local employment and supply chain opportunities for Tanzanian people and businesses. By building on local partnerships, we hire and train local talent to help us succeed.
We are powering Tanzania’s energy transition by increasing the domestic supply of natural gas to reduce reliance on heavy fuel oils (HFOs). We are also reducing our own emissions and improving our measurement and reporting processes.
A holistic approach
By empowering all of our people to work towards a shared vision, we are motivated by the ability to transform people’s lives for the better.
