Our approach to sustainability

Our sustainability strategy aligns with our purpose of driving inclusive and sustainable growth. By providing products and services that meet the development needs of Africa and her people, we achieve our purpose.

Our commitment to net zero by 2050 and enabling a just transition for Africa

We support a just transition that seeks to achieve the imperative for environmental sustainability in a manner that creates decent work opportunities and social inclusion, addresses Africa’s energy poverty.

Thulani Gcabashe
Previous Chairman, Standard Bank Group

We recognise that effective ESG risk management is crucial to minimise direct and indirect harm to the environment and society arising from our operations, who we do business with and what we finance, and how we balance Africa’s need for affordable energy with climate considerations and the need for a just transition.

Sim Tshabalala
Group Chief Executive Officer, Executive Director, SBG and SBSA

Throughout our long history we have existed to help people and businesses to achieve their goals - and, in so doing, to promote economic and human development in Africa.
