Our Sustainability Strategy
Sustainability forms an integral and integrated part of TFG’s corporate strategy, BOLTS. It is one of the key strategic pillars and an imperative embedded in the philosophy and execution of the Group’s strategy.
The “sustain” strategic pillar works towards achieving three clear objectives across our territories. These objectives are relevant to all our brands and territories, and focus our investment and priorities for the Group. Although our ways of working may differ, they are aligned to achieving these common objectives.
We want people to live better lives, and live up to their full potential.
By having a clear purpose, TFG can inspire people, enabling them to find their passion and improve their wellbeing. As such, we can all contribute to a better world.
We are committed to transformation, human rights, inclusivity and job creation.
We believe in partnerships as the most impactful way to optimise supply chains, support small businesses and drive localisation. We are also committed to developing ethical and transparent supply chains that source commodities responsibly.
In South Africa, we are committed to growing a strong local manufacturing sector that can effectively respond to shifts in consumer demands, ensure convenience, and support immediate fulfilment.
We want to practise responsible product stewardship in the way we design, manufacture, sell and dispose of products to minimise environmental impact.
We commit to working towards a zero-waste business and value chain, to reduce emissions and increase customer awareness of environmental issues by being transparent and inspiring customers through our brand initiatives.
Our Contribution to the UN SDGs
We want to ensure we have a positive impact and contribute to global priorities. TFG supports the intent of the Sustainable Development Goals as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. TFG’s priority goals are 8, 9 and 12.
