Sasol in Society

Positioning for Sustainability

Sustainability is a strategic imperative for Sasol and guides our efforts across the business. We are committed to creating long-term value for all our stakeholders. We do so by strengthening the sustainability of our operations, continuing to prioritise health and safety, and retaining the support of the communities in which we work. The wellbeing of our people, respecting the interests of our stakeholders and minimising our impact on the environment are considered in everything we do.

We are proud of our unique legacy of leveraging technology to deliver positive socio-economic developments in South Africa, and are energised by the journey ahead, as we address the challenge of ensuring our long-term resilience.

Our approach is guided by our sustainability statement: “Advancing chemical and energy solutions that contribute to a thriving planet, society and enterprise.” This has been translated into four sustainability strategic focus areas, underpinned by our considerations of materiality and our risk-based approach, through our formalised governance structures. Furthermore the trade-offs between the six capitals are an integral part of decision-making while remaining committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
