As the world evolves, we create new responses to changing economic, social and political environments in ways that balance different interests responsibly. We are also conscious that we have to be transparent in how we make these choices and allow stakeholders to shape our thinking. This section features ESG topics that are important to our stakeholders.
Watch Anton Gildenhuys, Chief Risk Officer explain how Sanlam responds to stakeholder demands for more transparency on issues such as cyber-resilience. As the custodian of people’s savings on the African continent, Sanlam is promoting an ethical culture and taking accountability through the five business clusters to ensure resilience.
Watch Robert Roux, Chief Executive Officer of Sanlam Investment Group, explain Sanlam’s approach to environmental, social and governance aspects when making investment decisions. Responsible investment is about making a contribution to a resilient world and communities.
The Sanlam Group and its five business clusters are committed to building a world for generations to come. In our 2019 cluster resilience reports we explain how each cluster contributes to financial resilience for individuals, organisations and society. We measure progress and tell unique stories about the year through case studies.
Sanlam’s strategic intent is to create sustainable value for all stakeholders. We have a vast network of stakeholders who have been part of our journey since 1918. Our relationships with them are based on trust and a mutual interest in creating financial resilience for individuals, organisations and society. We tell our stories through our stakeholders and continue to optimise how we interact.
Sanlam’s sustainability summary, “Creating resilience in 2019” provides a quick overview of our approach, material cluster focus areas and group achievements for the year. We continued building a world that supports people in living their best possible lives through financial resilience and prosperity. This is a fast-read summary of our contribution and response to social, environmental and governance challenges in South Africa and all the markets where we operate.
As one of the biggest internationally active insurance groups in the world, Sanlam plays an important role in helping people realise their financial goals over their lifetime and achieve financial prosperity. We also contribute to financial resilience by building the capacity of systems, organisations, environments and the economy to absorb the potential negative financial consequences of internal or external shocks.
Our stakeholders trust us to act with integrity and deliver on our promises. The Sanlam Code of Ethical Conduct and the Sanlam Business Philosophy are at the core of our comprehensive governance and risk management approach and structures.
