Sanlam strongly believes that as a good corporate citizen, the Group must continuously contribute towards South Africa’s progress as a country, communities and individuals.
Sanlam understands that economic transformation is a national economic priority, and black economic empowerment (BEE) is a corporate responsibility that the Group takes very seriously.
Not only was Sanlam the first major financial institution in South Africa to conclude an empowerment transaction in 2004, but in so doing it opened up the Group's ownership opportunities to a broad base of new black shareholders.
The Sanlam Foundation is the embodiment of Sanlam’s deep concern for the socio-economic and environmental challenges that threaten the sustainability of the environment.
For Sanlam, a sustainable business environment is one in which individuals, families and communities can afford to save and plan for their futures.
Sanlam views employment equity as an integral element of the Group’s overall transformation initiative. Legislation is necessary for the removal of the economic legacies of structural inequality.
The Group has developed an HIV/Aids policy, to ensure the creation of a working environment that attracts, trains and retains skilled people.
Sanlam has a rich and proud history built on a solid foundation of professional and ethical behaviour. In an ever-changing environment, Sanlam strives to be a reliable, trustworthy company.
