Engaging with our stakeholders

We actively engage with our stakeholders to ensure the achievement of our strategy and strive towards a multi-stakeholder approach towards solving difficult challenges.

During the year our annual Sasol engagement plan was informed by Sasol’s and stakeholders’ priority issues. We responded both to progressing our strategic issues, addressing stakeholder concerns, as well as building more trust-based relationships with stakeholders. We expanded our engagement to include communities, environmental non-governmental organisations (NGOs), Parliamentary Portfolio Committees, senior government officials, the media and Sasol employees. In addition, our Joint CEOs actively increased their visibility globally with stakeholders, including staff. Most notably, in South Africa our Joint CEOs participated in the CEO Initiative aimed at shaping the economic trajectory of the country for the better. In addition, Sasol remains committed to Mozambique and participated in the “Advancing Mozambique” campaign as a key investor.

Government:

We focused on maintaining good working relationships with governmental authorities keeping them informed of our activities, on-going projects and key concerns.
