  “The Five Components of Key Partners”
“Gran Tierra emphasized that we have to be inclusive of the local economy, which is why in addition to our normal practice of maintaining a staff that is almost completely local, we source our goods locally and even have our uniforms made locally. This is our social responsibility and it builds trust with the community.”
