Our Commitment: Keeping our people safe and healthy is of paramount importance to us. We are also determined to create economic growth, social mobility, and improved quality of life in communities that don’t have access to natural gas or renewable energy supplies. By providing reliable, easy access to safe, quick, cleaner, and less polluting energy, we are enabling these people to save time, improve their education and economic prospects, and reduce premature deaths and disease.
Health & Safety
Care for our people, in a healthy and safe workplace, is at the heart of how we run our operations. Our approach is governed by a strict Quality, Health, Safety, Environmental and Security Management (QHSE) system which is certified by DNV for ISM, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & ISO 45001.
We are a proud signatory of the Neptune Declaration on Seafarer Wellbeing and Crew Change which gives seafarers priority access to Covid-19 vaccines, standard health protocols and improves collaboration between ship operators and charterers to facilitate crew changes.
Diversity and Inclusion
We are committed to doing business ethically and transparently, and we do not tolerate discrimination, corruption or unethical behaviour.
Petredec has a longstanding policy of recruiting the best individual for the role, irrespective of their gender, culture, background or beliefs. This means we continue to provide an inclusive workplace environment, regardless of location.
Supporting local communities
Petredec Group, and its operating companies are committed to improving the quality of life for the local communities that they operate in.
Petregaz, a subsidiary of Petredec Onshore’s business operating in the Africa and Asia regions, sponsors a number of local community initiatives. This includes Summer House, a non-profit organisation that supports disadvantaged children in the local area with housing, education and social aid.
Petregaz is also a proud sponsor of the #KidsInConservation bus, an initiative run by the Sundays River Citrus Company (SRCC) Foundation, which gives local children the opportunity to visit game parks and be educated on the importance of environmental conservation.
Skills training to empower local communities
Through donations received to the SRCC Foundation, from organisations such as Petregaz, the Moses Madiba High School computer lab can exist, providing an environment for development of technology skills, so important for future employment opportunities to children and young adults.
Petregaz in South Africa is also a sponsor of the LPGSA initiative – providing bursaries for LPG domestic installation courses in the aim of empowering community members through providing employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.
The uThandekile foundation is an organisation dedicated to uplifting women and the youth of South Africa. Petregaz in partnership with the uThandekile foundation were able to award 12 bursaries for students registered in 2022. These bursaries focused on community development projects such as youth empowerment programs, business mentorship programs, women driver initiatives and Women in STEM Platforms.
Our Sustainability Policies centre around our environmental commitments to safeguarding the Planet, our commitment to our People to provide a safe, healthy and responsible workplace, all conducted under a corporate governance framework based on transparent and rigorous Processes.
