Sustainability

 

Sustainable management is integral to our strategy and operations because it underpins the sustainability of Senwes as a going concern. We are committed to ensuring the sustainability of our business, while simultaneously contributing towards the continued existence of a just, equitable and stable society, as well as the preservation of the ecosystem. We do this by being conscious of our actions and the impact thereof on both society and the natural environment, and by developing strategies to ensure that we minimise negative impact and optimise positive impact.
