Ethics at Sasol

Our shared values define what we stand for as an organisation and inform our actions and behavior.  They determine the way we interpret and respond to various situations and how we work with and treat each other, our customers, shareholders, suppliers, partners and the communities we serve.


Our six shared values are:

  • Safety
    We are committed to zero harm and all that we do, we do safely.
  • People
    We create a caring, engaged and enabled work environment that recognises both individual and team contributions in pursuit of high performance.
  • Integrity
    We act consistently on a set of ethical standards and principles.
  • Accountability
    We take ownership of our behavior and responsibility to perform both individually and in teams.
  • Stakeholder focus
    We serve our stakeholders through quality products, service solutions and value creation.
  • Excellence in all we do
    We deliver what we promise and add value beyond expectations.


As one of our shared values, integrity commits all of us to always do what is right and to maintain the highest levels of ethics in our interactions with each other, suppliers, customers and all other stakeholders.  Integrity is critical to our reputation and long-term success.  Integrity is made possible by acting consistently according to clearly defined ethical principles, such as those contained in the Sasol Code of Ethics.
