Secunda, Mpumalanga – Sasol Mining today celebrated the final phase of its Secunda housing project with the handover of 18 homes to its employees. This brings to 218 the total number of houses Sasol Mining has handed over to employees as part of the Social and Labour Plan. The houses are in eMbalenhle and Secunda, Mpumalanga. 

Said Pierre Jordaan, Vice President: Mining Services at Sasol Mining: “The provision of housing to Sasol Mining employees is a continuous process and an initiative in accordance with the Social and Labour Plan. Handing over houses to colleagues is also part of our broader transformation journey. As a caring employer, we seek to increase home-ownership across our ranks and build our nation. We believe homes are more than just houses, homes provide the foundation for family, the foundation for stable community and the foundation for wealth creation.” 

The houses are an adequate size with essential basic infrastructure such as water, sanitation and electricity. This is because Sasol Mining recognises the importance of decent housing for its employees.

Added Jordaan: “We have invested and will continue to invest in the local development of our infrastructure enabling us as a proud South African company to leave a lasting legacy.  Our employees must be proud and be able to point out the positive impact that we are making in the communities where we conduct our business.”

 

Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts that 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 (including LCCP), oil and gas reserves and cost reductions, including in connection with our BPEP, RP and our business performance outlook. 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 28 August 2018 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.
