BUBOU, G.M.; BRENT, A.C.  e  TREDOUX, C.. Towards assessing the social sustainability performance of the petroleum industry in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.1, pp.119-132. ISSN 2224-7890.

Unresolved social issues between the local community and the petroleum industry plague the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. These concerns are addressed by introducing a social sustainability assessment framework for the petroleum industry. Key performance indicators (KPIs) are identified, through a stakeholders' engagement process, for social performance measurement purposes. A five-year time-frame is proposed for the periodic assessment of the state of social sustainability. It is recommended that the petroleum industry make the accounting of social sustainability performance measures a priority before beginning projects, especially greenfield projects, since this can assist in resolving the volatility in the region.
