Corporate Citizenship

At Ohorongo Cement, we believe that being a responsible corporate citizen is more than a commitment; it’s our core philosophy. We’ve made it our mission to create a supportive and fair working environment, conducive to employee satisfaction and productivity. But our dedication extends even further – it encompasses a holistic approach that takes into account our entire sphere of influence. This includes a deep consideration of the environmental, economic, and social impact of our operations on the communities we serve.

Caring for Our People

Creating a safe environment

As a responsible employer, we place the highest emphasis on the well-being of the individuals who dedicate their waking hours to working with us. Providing a safe working environment is a paramount focus for Ohorongo. We’re committed to ensuring that every person working at Ohorongo Cement is not only productive but also feels secure and protected.

Empowering Our Workforce

We offer ample opportunities for personal development to every individual in our employ. Additionally, we believe in offering fair remuneration, comprehensive medical support, and old-age pension benefits. We aim to ensure that each of our employees can comfortably provide for their families and make provisions for their future, well into their retirement.

Local First

Enriching Namibia's Economy

At Ohorongo Cement, we understand that our positive impact on local and national income levels and socio-economic development is significant. Our calculations indicate that we contribute over one percent to Namibia’s total GDP. To enhance this impact, we prioritize local procurement and the purchase of homegrown products whenever possible. Ohorongo is one of the few Namibian companies where the entire value chain, from raw limestone rock to world-class cement, relies on Namibian raw materials.


Awards and Recognition

Ohorongo Cement’s dedication to excellence has earned us several prestigious awards throughout the years. We are proud to have been the recipients of the EIF Award for Environmental Excellence Among Industries and the Gold Award for NMA Most Environmentally Friendly Manufacturer of the Year. We have also been recognized as the runner-up in the NSI Awards for Product of the Year, Quality Company of the Year, and Quality Service of the Year.

Environmental Responsibility

We take our responsibilities toward the physical environment seriously. We are committed to using resources wisely and with minimal environmental impact. Technological means are leveraged to monitor, preempt, prevent, and rehabilitate any potential harm caused by our operations.

Our dedication extends to adopting and implementing technological advances that enhance efficiency, quality, safety, and environmental protection. We are proud to be certified with ISO 14001:2015.

Community Development

GIVING BACK: We are dedicated to giving back to the community of Namibia through our Corporate Social Investment Program (CSIP). By collaborating with national charities like the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia and international groups like Support e.V ULM, we uplift communities and contribute to the growth and development of Namibia.

Good Corporate Citizenship

Since the inception of our cement plant in 2010, we strived to support the economic growth and social development of the communities where we operate.
Our limestone deposit, which held reserves for more than 300 years, allows us a substantial commitment to practice good corporate citizenship for years to come.

Facing Challenges Together

Since we started, our Corporate Social Investment Program (CSIP) has made a lasting impact in Namibia. The projects we’ve undertaken have been well-received by the communities they’ve benefited, as well as by local and national governments. We are dedicated to assisting needy residents in various communities, empowering them to become self-sufficient, educated, and responsible citizens.

Projects for the Future

With a limestone deposit that can sustain us for centuries, Ohorongo Cement is committed to working hand in hand with local, regional and national role-players to contribute to the socio-economic development and prosperity of Namibia. While this goal may take time, each project we complete brings us one step closer to our ultimate aspiration.
