Asharami Energy gets certification for procurement

Asharami Energy, a Sahara Group subsidiary operating in the upstream sector, has been awarded the ISO 20400 certification for sustainable procurement by the International Organisation for Standardisation.

The ISO 20400 certification is a globally recognised standard for sustainable procurement and is awarded to organisations that demonstrate their commitment to sustainable practices and responsible sourcing.

The company said in a statement that the certification is a testament to its dedication to promoting sustainable practices across its operations.

“At Asharami Energy, we are always working towards aligning the impact of our operations with global environment standards, collaborating with all stakeholders within our host communities,” Henry Menkiti, chief operating officer of Asharami Energy, said.

He said the company continues to make its distinctive mark in the upstream sector, through several quality and safety milestones, the most recent being the company’s record of three million lost time injury-free man-hours.

He added that the ‘Lost Time Injury’ was an important occupational safety and health benchmark in the oil and gas industry.

“It is also a measure of an injury or illness that occurs following a work-related incident and causes an individual to miss workdays or disrupt operations due to downtime.”

Frank Emeruwa, head of supply chain management of Asharami Energy, said sustainable procurement remained critical to ensuring the long-term success of energy businesses and more sustainable community relations.

“This achievement demonstrates our unwavering commitment to responsible sourcing, ethical practices, and transparency in our procurement processes.

“With this achievement, Asharami Energy has set a benchmark for sustainable procurement practices in the upstream industry, reinforcing Sahara group’s commitment towards making a difference, bringing energy to life responsibly,” he added.
