Incorporating the VPs into Investment Agreements

Categories: Ethical Business Tags:

As part of its risk assessment process, an energy company working in Central Asia identified a number of potential concerns over the conduct of public security providers. The company raised these concerns with the host government. While the host government acknowledged the concerns, they also identified a lack of technical capacity on the part of public security providers. The company worked with the host government to address this. The company ended up establishing a bilateral security protocol with the government that covered use of force, exchange of information and humanitarian law. The company provided assistance by way of training so that the host government and public security forces could meet its obligations as outlined in the agreement.
