Sasol’s vision, particularly in the areas where we operate, is to contribute to a more resilient and inclusive society that embraces, enables and empowers the vulnerable. Our definition of a just transition accords with South Africa’s Presidential Climate Commission (PCC) Just Transition Framework and is based on Sasol’s unique place within the economy and society:
A shared value proposition comprising an inclusive transformation of our business, people and society, as we decarbonise and transition to a thriving Future Sasol.
Implementing our decarbonisation pathways will have negative socio-economic impacts unless systematic, targeted and affirmative steps are taken. These impacts will mostly relate to phasing down our coal usage in the medium and long term and could have implications for our workforce, communities and suppliers including small, medium and micro enterprises in South Africa. We are aware of these potential outcomes and are committed to working deliberately to create and support programmes that will exploit green-economy opportunities that can deliver positive socio-economic impacts as we transition to a low-carbon future.
