Environment, social and governance sustainability

At Blue Label Telecoms, we are acutely aware of the importance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) sustainability. While it is critical for long-term value creation for investors, shareholders, employees, and all our stakeholders, it is more importantly a social and moral imperative. We note that responsible behaviour facilitates solutions to the challenges societies face, and the global trend indicates that consumers are walking away from businesses that espouse poor governance and corporate practices.

As a business, we are at the inception of our ESG disclosure journey and we understand that investors are paying more attention to ESG metrics than ever before, and added to this, it has become globally accepted that ESG disclosure, sustainability and corporate performance are linked.

In this regard, we commit in the coming year to conducting a benchmarking assessment against our peers and to identify material ESG-related matters to incorporate into our ESG strategy. In the medium term, we will work closely with subject-matter experts on the way towards formulating a comprehensive ESG monitoring and reporting plan as a means of enhancing our overall ESG-related disclosures.
