Sasol leadersip with Government officials during the Sasol Shutdown 2021 Vaccination Drive Launch

Our role in society To this end, Sasol, in a significant partnership with the government of Mpumalanga, launched a massive Covid-19 vaccination drive in July 2021 for our employees and service providers. This is a partnership that has allowed the Provincial Government of Mpumalanga, through its Health Department, to make available important resources such as professionally-trained personnel and more than enough vaccines to support this large-scale vaccination drive. This means that going into 2022, while focusing our efforts on meeting our strategic corporate objectives, we shall equally illustrate as a company with our heritage firmly established in South Africa, our commitment to curbing the spread of the coronavirus. This is due to the fact that we believe that government and corporate business jointly strengthen our role in society as well as assist us to continue playing a critical role in protecting livelihoods, fuelling the sustainability of the vast sector we serve and ultimately reviving the South African economy. It is clear that out of this pandemic a new normal has emerged, one with a strong emphasis on social responsibility. We should not underestimate the power of social responsibility in drastically reducing the spread of the virus and we need everyone on-board for it to work. Therefore, Sasol urges everyone to mask up, wash up and sign up to get vaccinated. Be part of the solution and of a global community that is actively curbing the spread of the coronavirus. Item
