The FIRST E&P team visited the Lekki Conservation Center (LCC) in continuation of its GOAL ZERO+ campaign activities in the month of June. The campaign theme for the month was on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) with focus on Environmental Excellence.  We also incorporated theOnly One Earth’ tagline, which is the global theme for this year’s World Environment Day (WED).

Staff set out to commune with nature and further appreciate the earth’s natural habitat. The visit helped to remind us, and reinforce the need for organisations and individuals to protect these ecosystems and their elements.

While team members engaged in different fun and bonding activities, the primary aim of the visit was to help the organisation put our business activities in perspective. Having access to nature and enjoying the benefits derivable therefrom helps to keep us conscious of the potential damage we could cause to the environment and by extension ourselves, if we do not deploy protective processes and technologies in our developmental and operational activities.

Leaning on this year’s WED theme of ‘Living Sustainably with Nature’, we are reminded that humans can pursue development without putting the earth at risk. One key message that was re-echoed during our visit is that while the environment may have political boundaries, there are truly no geographical boundaries; reiterating the point that any harm we cause to the environment in our little space can catch up with our family or relative living several kilometers away.
