Driven by the goal of achieving the highest level of governance, the 7 Sustainability Pillars are embedded in our corporate culture and guide our approach to building a prosperous and sustainable business.
“Our approach to sustainability has been developed through an extensive stakeholder engagement process, led by the Sustainability and Governance Department of the Dangote Group. “The Dangote Way”, our unique approach towards engendering sustainability across all our operations, embeds at the core of our procedures and corporate culture, indicative of our absolute commitment to sustainability; powered by the highest levels of governance.”
“As Africa’s leading cement producer with a hard-earned reputation for excellent business practices and quality products, our vision is to be a world-class enterprise that is passionate about supporting the well-being of the society, while still giving high return on investment to our esteemed shareholders. This, without doubt translates to a world in which communities and societies become more prosperous, safer, healthier and more environmentally sustainable.”
“Our approach is built on the premise that sustainability must be owned and practised at every level of our organisation, especially at the highest levels of institutional governance. We also believe that measuring and reporting our activities transparently and consistently is a crucial component to constantly improving on our role and impact in transforming our ecosystem. To achieve this, we continually invest in extensive stakeholder consultations, also internally, by which process we have developed our own customised framework towards sustainability.”
