As a State-owned company, supporting transformation internally and within society is an intrinsic part of our value creation story.

OUR APPROACH TO TRANSFORMATION

Our approach to transformation is embedding an integrated, collaborative and sustainable approach to accelerate social and economic transformation agenda which focuses on transforming our business, our people and society and the environment in which we operate in order to effect meaningful and sustainable change. As a State-owned company, supporting transformation internally and within society is an intrinsic part of our value creation story. Our integrated transformation agenda is aligned to South Africa’s National Development Plan, informed by our Sustainability Framework and focuses on transforming our people, supplier base, society and environment.

Our commitment to developing the socio-economic status of previously disadvantaged South Africans

through initiatives has always gone beyond legislation and focused on tangible developments to strengthen our democracy. To us, transformation is a process that collapses the barriers of exclusion and creates new opportunities, contributing to inclusive growth and stability, while fostering a bright and sustainable future for everyone who lives, works and travels in our country. We also acknowledge the environmental impact of our operations and are committed to managing this responsibly.

In the year under review, however, our transformation initiatives were severely impacted by the pandemic. While the transformation of our people, supplier base and society were negatively affected, our environmental impact was lessened. 

Our ability to transform is closely linked to our performance overall and in an unprecedented year, we remained committed to meeting regulatory requirements and persisted in doing more with the resources that remained at our disposal.

This year, we fully developed our transformation policy and transformation barometer to track our progress on transformation. We also continued to manage and monitor transformation as a strategic objective through four KPIs outlined below. During the year under review, our B-BBEE level and ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation level from FY2019/20 has been upheld as the FY2020/21 accreditation cycle for both KPIs was delayed because of the impact of COVID-19.
