Safaricom Sustainability Report 2016


This process has begun in earnest and one of the outcomes is an enhanced purpose statement for the business that aligns

our vision of transforming lives, new business strategy and material matters with the SDG objectives. Much of the early work

in this process has been to convert the SDGs from a list of noble ideals into a set of tangible, meaningful and realistic daily

objectives for us as a company. We look forward to sharing our discoveries and progress in this regard in our report next year.

“We are aware integrating sustainability is an uncertain journey

of which we have just begun. Our success so far has been

underpinned by the effort we have put in towards engaging in

open conversations across board with our colleagues in order to

bring the SDGs closer to our business.”

Stephen Chege
