Culture

Our commitment is to build a performance-driven and trust-based culture that values and protects our communities, employees, environment and shareholders to underpin and strengthen our long-term plan for success. Our culture is based on our integrated value system known as SPEED, and it is at the core of everything we do.

GeoPark’s Commitments

  • Delivering significant bottom-line financial value to our shareholders: We believe that only a financially healthy company can continue to grow, attract the needed resources and create long-term benefits.
  • Creating a safe and motivating workplace for employees: With capable energy professionals in short supply today, the companies that can attract, protect, retain and train the best teams with the best attitude will always prevail.
  • Minimizing the impact of our projects on the environment: As our footprint becomes cleaner and smaller, we believe that more areas and opportunities will be opened up for us to work in. Our long-term wellbeing requires us to fit in with our surroundings.
  • Being the preferred neighbor and partner by creating a mutually beneficial exchange with the local communities where we work. Unlocking local knowledge helps to create and foster sustainable value in our projects over the long term. Simply put, if our efforts enhance local goals and customs, we will be invited to do more.

GeoPark?s methodology is focused on undertaking realistic and practical programs based on the best practices in the world. Our emphasis is on building key principles and company wide ownership, and then expanding programs from within as we continue to grow. Our comprehensive, in-house designed EHSS management program, called SPEED (Safety, Prosperity, Employees, Environment and Community Development), is being developed in accordance with ISO 14001 for environmental management issues, OSHAS 18001 for occupational health and safety management issues, SA 8000 for social accountability and worker rights issues, the development standards of the World Bank, and the Quoted Companies Alliance standards for good corporate governance.
