Managing Director of Unilever Ghana Plc, George Owusu-Ansah has underscored the need for a secured environment in which businesses can thrive and remain sustainable.
For the business which has operated in the country for decades, a secured environment will not only protect its investment but its workforce of nearly 1000 people and consumers.
He believes utmost security could however be achieved when stakeholders share responsibility hence the company’s readiness to play its part.
Mr Owusu-Ansah disclosed this to JoyBusiness when the company donated two Apsonic motorbikes and 50 boxes of assorted Unilever products to Tema Regional Police Command.
The donation follows an earlier promise Mr. Owusu-Ansah made when he visited Tema Regional Police Commander, COP Daniel Kwame Afriyie in 2022 where the latter had touched on the capacity of his team to patrol.
“During the visit last year, one of the areas you touched on was the capacity of your team to patrol around town. I then assured you that the company would see what to do. So we’re here today in respect to the conversation we had and the comment that I made,” he said.
COP Daniel Kwame Afriyie also expressed gratitude to Unilever Ghana for the gesture.
“We are grateful on behalf of this Administration, the Inspector General of Police and Tema region for your kind thoughts and fulfilling your pledge to us”.
“One of our key pillars is community policing approach where we partner the community and stakeholders to fulfill our mandate in ensuring enforcement of law and order and security in the communities,” he said.
Meanwhile, Unilever has pledged to support the new health facility of the Police Service at Community 2 which will take care of police personnel, crime suspects and the public.
The company said it will continue to stand by assurances given to the police in 2022 to remain an important ally.
For Unilever, such steps form part of its sustainability strategy, community relations and being a good corporate citizen.
