Sasol in Society

Arbor Day in China 2022

On 12 March, Arbor Day in China, Team Sasol in China organised an event for employees and their families to plant trees. More than 70 people gathered to support the sustainable social initiative. Each family planted at least one sapling. Per some statistics, one tree can absorb 5 to 10 kg carbon every year.

It was the second tree planting event organisd by Team Sasol in China, the last one was in April 2021, in the same countryside area. 

Though small, Team Sasol in China are enthusiastic about contributing to the carbon reduction for Sasol’s global sustainable goals, just as one famous saying in Chinese, “take good actions no matter how small it could be”.

We partner with relevant government, communities and business partners to implement environmental protection measures, guarding green production, transmitting sustainable concept, and contributing to Sasol’s FY50 carbon net zero target.  Sasol China employees are proudly participating into different environment and social initiatives, because they believe their contribution today will not only benefit themselves, but also their offspring generations behind.
