Emmanuel Appiah brings 12 years of experience from working with Corporate Social Responsibility in the oil industry, and enjoys the opportunity to see real, measurable impact from his work.

“Ghana’s oil industry is still in its blossoming stages and this provides an opportunity to shape policy and structure that can be to the benefit of Ghana as a whole. As one of the first employees of my former company, I had the opportunity to design CSR policy framework and strategy implementation that other companies have replicated in the implementation of their CSR portfolios. The opportunity to contribute significantly through CSR policies designed and implemented through the industry is one of the most thrilling experiences any employee can have,” says Emmanuel Appiah.

He wanted to join Aker Energy because it provides a unique opportunity to offer his skills and vast experience in corporate social responsibility to promote mutual respect between the company and its relevant stakeholders.
