How we respond as a business
We have executed our action plan "HEALTH, COST & CASH"
Since the beginning of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, Bamburi Cement has taken the necessary measures to protect the health of its employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation and following the guidance provided by the Government and health authorities.
While the construction sector and construction sites are some of the most resilient, our operations are disrupted like every other sector of the economy and we expect a negative impact on our business in Q2.
Currently the development of the Coronavirus pandemic and its implications on business are volatile. In order to mitigate the financial impact of the situation, we launched the action plan “HEALTH, COST & CASH” for immediate execution. While the action plan is in full execution, the dynamic and volatile development of the Coronavirus pandemic makes it currently no longer possible to fully evaluate its impact on our business performance in 2020.
