CODE OF CONDUCT
At Al Asab, we believe in being all rounded which has led us to achieve sustained commercial success.
We take note and remain aware of the changes occurring politically, socially and economically.
The support of local economies has always been important to Al Asab.
Wherever the Company operates, for instance, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Algeria we’re committed to employing local people, working with local suppliers and developing local capabilities.
Being the right thing to do, we see this as a source of competitive advantage, helping us to keep costs down, improve the quality and availability of local suppliers, and build stronger relationships with local stakeholders.
In this way, we aim to make a positive and measurable contribution to the economies in which we operate.
