DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Our formula for success always begins with great people. This approach to attracting the best has unsurprisingly created a highly diverse, multi-country workforce and management team with a high percentage of women. Despite the volatility of the industry, we have learned that diversity is a special strength of GeoPark: a powerful tool that has allowed us to achieve more and go further.


Gender equality

We are convinced that integrating and promoting diverse teams is the key to enhancing our growth and being a leading and unique company in Latin America. We therefore promote a variety of initiatives such as the “Timothy O’Shaughnessy” University Scholarship Program for Women in Science and taking part in the Women and Mining Working Group in Chile.

We report our gender parity indicators in line with the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index (GEI) evaluation framework, which shows listed companies’ gender representation progress at all levels of the organization. Learn more about Bloomberg's GEI here.


VALUE CHAIN

We are committed to the social and economic development of the regions we operate in. Part of this is proactively promoting relationships with local suppliers, and about 23% of our total budget is allocated to them. The framework that guides our actions with suppliers and contractors is the Corporate Policy for the Supply of Goods and Services, which establishes the principles, standards and controls for procurement activities.

Our "Labor Management and Accompaniment Program" invites our partner companies (contractors and/or subcontractors) to implement responsible labor practices focusing on decent and dignified work that is carried out with the necessary diligence to detect, prevent and mitigate real or potential negative consequences on human rights and fundamental rights at work.
