Johannesburg, South Africa – Today, Sasol handed over the recently upgraded Little Rainbow Creche in Nancefield to its board of directors. The company invested approximately R500 000 in essential infrastructure of the crèche.
“It is a privilege to celebrate Little Rainbow Creche with the children and members who undertake incredible work in this community,” said Wrenelle Stander, Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs and Real Estate Services at Sasol. “For us, early childhood development is central to sustainable development so that the children of our communities are provided with the opportunity to quality early education.”
Part of Sasol’s Social Investment strategy is partnering with Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres in communities where those children are prepared to enter formal education and thrive.
“It is essential that children are provided the opportunity to access quality early education so that they are prepared cognitively, emotionally and physically before entering formal education,” added Stander.
Through Sasol’s Social Investment and Real Estate Services teams, this in-house collaboration upgraded the kitchen and installed a new stove, upgraded the current containers; created a play area with a jungle gym; installed new sanitary ware, and upgraded security and improved power supply to ensure it is safe and compliant.
Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such
forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects and cost reductions, including in connection with our Business Performance Enhancement Programme and Response Plan. Words such as "believe", "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "seek", "will", "plan", "could", "may", "endeavour", "target", "forecast" and "project" and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 27 September 2016 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
