Our Management Approach

Our actions are aligned to contribute to the 10 national priority SDGs adopted by the Government of Zimbabwe. Our approach is to ensure that we continue to report on our contribution to the SDGs along our sustainability reporting using the newly launched guide manual developed by GRI and United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) for Business Reporting on SDGs.
