Our good neighborliness is based on listening to and learning from communities, respecting their customs and traditions, reinforcing their identity and generating genuine, sustainable and long-term relationships. This allows us to accompany and enhance their development, minimize our impact and uphold environmentally responsible operations. Our presence and direct, warm and transparent relationship are based on four principles: dialogue of equals, genuine relationships, trust and commitment.
“Cuéntame” is what GeoPark uses to respond to what our stakeholders tell us. It is a program for the timely and effective consideration of requests, complaints and claims that stakeholders may have in relation to GeoPark’s operational presence in their territories.
“Cuéntame” has allowed us to strengthen the bonds of trust between GeoPark and its neighbors. It involves different areas of specialization within the Company, which analyze issues raised to create action plans that provide responses and bring effective closure.
For GeoPark, transparency is a corporate principle related to informing our stakeholders about the activities, projects, results, expectations, opportunities, and limitations of our performance. In the “Encuentros por la Transparencia” that we hold quarterly, we have the opportunity to share with our neighbors and representatives of municipal authorities the development plans for blocks, hear their expectations and resolve concerns.
We coordinate with institutional partners to support our sustainability work in the areas we operate in.
