As a responsible organization, KETRACO prides itself in being committed to environmental protection and conservation. Borrowing from the principle of sustainable development and guided by the Environmental Management and Co-ordination Act (EMCA), 1999 among other local and international legislations including donors conditions, KETRACO’s ensures all its project activities undergo a process of thorough investigation to identify impacts they may have on the environment and social well-being and formulate mitigation measures that are necessary to avoid, minimize or offset predicted adverse impacts. Some tools used in this process include Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), Environmental Audits (EA), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Resettlement Action Plan, (RAP) and Indigenous People Plan (IPP).

Further to this, KETRACO cooperates with Environmental Agencies, Donors and the Public on programmes to protect the environment; provide the necessary training for its employees to ensure that they have the knowledge and capability to conduct operations in a manner that is consistent with sound environmental practices; and also provides the necessary resources, advice and guidance to ensure implementation and communication of this policy.
