“Being part of initiatives like BELA is a reflection of the commitment we have to strengthening the ethical culture that we have promoted since the first day of GeoPark, 20 years ago,” GeoPark CEO Andres Ocampo said. “With the guidance of this partnership, we will further strengthen our ethical business conduct and Compliance Program to continue to create real and lasting value for all our stakeholders.”

As a member of BELA GeoPark has access to an extensive repository of documents, presentations and research conducted by companies such as AT&T, Dell, GE, Nokia, Starbucks, US Bank, Bayer, Mahindra, Western Digital Corp, Johnson Controls, Diageo, and TATA Steel, as well as exclusive reports from Ethisphere. At BELA GeoPark will also be able to compare its Compliance Program with those of other leading companies worldwide to ensure the continuous improvement of its business ethics standards and practices.

“The BELA community is one that continues to adapt and commit to an exchange of best practices and peer-driven insights that enable better decisions when it comes to the combined business and compliance strategy. We are delighted to welcome GeoPark to the BELA community,” BELA CEO and vice president Kevin McCormack said.

Participating in BELA’s different forums will enable GeoPark to continue improving its ethics and compliance standards as it works towards its goal of being the leading oil and gas exploration and production company in Latin America.
