The power of positive impact

We are committed to building a better world

Sustainability is an integral part of who we are and what we do every single day. We recognise progress involves us balancing the financial, human, manufactured, social and relationship, natural and intellectual capitals for which we are responsible. This includes environmental stewardship, social responsibility and economic growth. It is central to responsible corporate citizenship. We provide work environments, products, services and solutions that make productive and efficient use of resources as we strive to achieve our vision. We believe this commitment supports the enduring success of our customers, shareholders, people, other stakeholders and the societies to which we belong.


We protect the health and safety of others and ourselves

Collectively, we strive to contribute to a global environment in which all people can work safely and live healthy, productive lives, now and in the future. We actively promote health and safety with policies and practical programmes that help individuals safeguard themselves and their colleagues. As employees, we put safety first by creating a work environment to protect the health and safety of others and ourselves. We actively promote safe practices throughout our value chain – from suppliers to end users. We are committed to providing our customers with products and services that are safe and reliable.

We recognise that it is people that create our enduring success

The people of Barloworld ensure its enduring success. We recruit, engage and develop innovative, high-performing people and help unleash their potential for growth. We strategically align and manage the needs of our people with the means to implement our strategy and create an enduring future. We build trust and engagement through ongoing open and honest communication and we encourage everyone to develop, adapt, and pursue their career growth aspirations.

We innovate to make our customers more efficient and productive

We innovate to provide customers with products, services, and solutions that improve the sustainability of their operations. We leverage technology and customer insight to improve product performance, and promote remanufacturing to extend product life and make our workplaces more productive, safer, and more efficient. We support sustainable solutions that protect and preserve the environment while leading to profitable growth for Barloworld and our customers.

We focus on environmental responsibility and preventing waste

We focus on improving the quality and efficiency of our operations while reducing our environmental impact. We support environmental stewardship and biodiversity by utilising business processes that enable waste prevention, promote recycling, improve quality, promote the efficient use of resources in operations, and responsible waste disposal. We are committed to complying with environmental laws and regulations and expect our suppliers and customers to do the same.

We are proactive members of our communities

As individuals and as a company, we contribute significant time and resources to promoting the education, youth development and empowerment, environmental conservation and as well as economic stability of the communities in which we operate. We encourage everyone to participate in community activities that promote the common good. We believe that our success should also contribute to the quality of life in, and the prosperity and sustainability of, communities where we work and live.
