OUR PASSION FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Being a national producer of foods in various product categories, we are at the centre of a large and diverse value chain that extends from raw material production to the end-users of our products and the communities in which we operate. As such, our material risks and environmental footprint are significant and diverse – as are the social, environmental and ethical issues that influence our business, either directly or through our supply chain and resource base. For this reason, we have to manage a continually evolving set of issues in order to sustain what we do, both now and in the future.
Our Sustainable Business Drive, framed in the model below, is aligned to our business strategy and addresses our sixth strategic thrust, “Drive Sustainable Business”.
As an employer of over 20 000 people and working with more than 1 200 small-scale growers and numerous secondary businesses, we impact the lives of millions of South Africans in the communities in which we operate. With over 27% of our population unemployed and nearly 45% of households dependent on social grants, we believe that we can play a positive role in enriching our communities by actively promoting sustainable, inclusive economic growth and creating a unique work environment where work is meaningful and enriching.
As a major food producer with a multi-tiered and geographically dispersed supply chain, our environmental footprint extends from raw material production to the end users of our products. With our survival dependent on shared, scarce natural resources and limited land, and further impacted by climate change, there is an urgent need for us to see and do things differently by consuming less energy and water, minimizing our waste and creating more value from our inputs and the waste we generate.
At RCL we offer a diverse portfolio of leading consumer brands, with exceptional company growth potential.
