Dr. Johan van Zyl

CEO of Sanlam

“Sustainability is an overriding objective of Sanlam’s activities. We are a long-term business that is dependent on building and maintaining long-term relationships based on trust. We believe focusing on long-term competitiveness rather than short-term profit ensures that we do not borrow from the future. For this reason, our decisions are made to safeguard the sustainability of our business. Sanlam’s support of the UNEP FI Principles for Sustainable Insurance as founding signatory is a natural consequence of our business philosophy. We look forward to working with others to stem and revert the collective undermining of our long-term capacity to create value. As an industry, we could play a bigger role in driving sustainability more broadly. The global adoption of the PSI is a step in this direction, to our collective benefit.”
