Sustainability 2020

Introducing resilience

In our world, resilience means that organisations, environments and economies can absorb the potential negative financial consequences of internal or external shocks. As one of the biggest internationally active insurance groups in the world, Sanlam plays an important role in creating and maintaining a sustainable system that is able to adapt and flourish. We do this by helping people realise their financial goals over their lifetime and achieve financial confidence, security and prosperity over generations.

How we govern sustainability

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.

Our lessons from nature

In the spirit of learning from the COVID-19 pandemic experience, we feature a few fascinating lessons from nature in our Resilience Report. These examples echo our theme of resilience, and emphasise how our planet and all its creatures have the ability to create innovative survival mechanisms over time.
