Climate action

Climate change is a defining challenge of our time, with impacts threatening our critical ecosystems, habitats and resources. Sasol supports the Paris Agreement and its calls for higher ambition. We have deepened our commitment to this cause through our updated and newly-developed roadmaps, targets and ambition for the short, medium and long term.

In 2021, we launched our 2050 net zero emissions ambition ("Net Zero") and Future Sasol strategy, which places us on a trajectory towards a significantly reduced GHG emissions profile. We have plans to deliver significant reductions in scope 1, 2 and 3 (Category 11) emissions by 2030.

Future Sasol is premised on producing sustainable fuels and chemicals, using our proprietary technology and expertise, while contributing to a thriving planet, society and enterprise. This will see Sasol transform and decarbonise, in particular our Secunda and Sasolburg Operations as outlined in our roadmaps.

With this vision in mind, we have:

  • significantly increased our 2030 target from at least 10% to 30% for scope 1 and 2 emissions for our Energy Business as we progress towards Net Zero by 2050;
  • set a 2030 scope 3 target, aiming for a 20% emission reduction from the use of energy products for our Energy Business as we progress towards Net Zero for these emissions by 2050; and
  • set a target to achieve a 30% reduction of scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 for our International Chemicals Business as we progress towards Net Zero by 2050.
