Welcome to Tsogo Sun
ABOUT THIS REPORT
We are pleased to present our integrated annual report to our stakeholders. This report is primarily written for our shareholders but it is also helpful to our other stakeholders interested in our ability to ensure a sustainable business into the future. This report provides a consolidated review of our ﬁnancial, economic, social and environmental performance on matters material to our strategy, our ability to create and sustain value and of interest to our key stakeholders.
The financial and other information has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of IFRS, the South African Companies Act 2008, the JSE Listings Requirements, King III and the international <IR> framework as applicable. The sustainability information included in this report has been guided by the GRI guidelines.
The group is continuously improving its combined assurance model. Assurance for elements of this integrated annual report has been provided through a combination of external and internal sources which will become more formalised in line with future guidance from the IIRC. Our internal auditors, KPMG, provided us with guidance regarding the principles and practices around King III and integrated reporting.
