We view corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a strategic component of doing business. We believe CSR encompasses not
only what companies do with their profits, but also how they make them. It goes beyond philanthropy and compliance and
addresses how companies manage their economic, social, and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships in all key
spheres of influence: the workplace, the marketplace, the supply chain, the community, and the public policy realm.

Members of our organization take the responsibilities of being good corporate citizens seriously. Social responsibility becomes
an integral part of the wealth creation process - which if managed properly should enhance the competitiveness of business and
maximize the value of wealth creation to the community.

In parts of the world where we are engaged in business, we look for opportunities to use our knowledge and experience as well as
the energy and passion of our people in the scale of our business to create meaningful change. We aim to build connections with
the stakeholders including community groups, government and the private sector in order to make a positive social impact in the
community. To this end, we have engaged the African Resource Foundation as one of our key strategic partners in Kenya.

Founded by Dr. Benson Karanja, a native of Kenya, Africa Resource Group is a global non-profit organization that has over 12
years of on the ground experience delivering real change to the people of Africa. We serve as a vehicle for delivering social services
in local communities where we are engaged in business. Social responsibility becomes an integral part of the wealth creation
process - which if managed properly should enhance the competitiveness of business and maximize the value of wealth creation to
society.

We believe that the opportunity is greater than ever for CSR principles and practices to deliver business returns and become a driver
of growth, to build deeper community connections and to create positive social and environmental impact in the world.
