Released alongside Sylvania's 2022 Annual Report is our first ESG report which outlines the operational and non-financial performance of Sylvania Platinum Limited for the 12 months ended 30 June 2022 and demonstrates how we are addressing our environmental, social and governance responsibilities to give our stakeholders a wider understanding of the Company’s influence and our impact on the environment, the communities in which we operate and the economy of South Africa.
Sylvania’s ESG journey follows a pathway that began with identifying and activating the drivers of ESG, gathering baseline information on potential material risks to ensure that future targets are based on verifiable information and assumptions. The transition phase included designing an ESG strategy and reporting framework. Finally, we have embedded ESG throughout Sylvania’s business strategy, identifying and including ESG in the Sylvania strategic risk register. This ensures that mitigation strategies for risks or opportunities linked to ESG elements are prioritised.
As mandated by the Board, Sylvania’s Executive Committee acknowledges its responsibility for ensuring the integrity of the ESG report, and has applied diligence in the collection of data, defining assumptions, as well as the preparation and presentation of the report. In our opinion, the Sylvania 2022 ESG Report is aligned with global trends for sustainability reporting and addresses all material matters linked to the Company’s core business. It offers a balanced view on how the company addresses impacts on society, the environment and the economy in the short, medium and long term.
