Win-win solutions that have impact
Posted on: 3 April 2023
KAL Group’s purpose is to ensure that stakeholders should benefit from its existence. This purpose drives not only its commercial operations but also the company’s approach to environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) activities.
ESG is a framework that helps stakeholders to understand how an organisation is managing risks and opportunities related to environmental, social and governance factors. Across the world, investors are increasingly applying these non-financial factors as part of their assessment of a business.
Barend Sulvester, Senior Manager: Sustainability, says KAL Group’s focus is on ESG issues most material to the business and stakeholders.
“The objective is to be a collaborative community partner that seeks collective impact in tackling developmental and sustainability issues. Our activities are also informed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals and we have identified seven goals which we are working towards. We recognise the important opportunity we have to contribute to lasting and sustainable solutions that assist and support our employees, uplift communities and reduce our impact on the environment.”
KAL Group’s recently published Integrated Report summarises key ESG impact achievements for the 2022 financial year, which we highlight in this useful infographic.
