Our Reporting to Society digital platform

Our Reporting to Society platform aims to communicate with a broad group of stakeholders about our impact on the societies, economies and environments in which we operate.

It provides information on those areas in which we believe we can – and do – make a significant positive contribution to improving the lives for our fellow Africans, in which we mitigate any negative impacts.

SEE impact areas

We identified the six SEE impact areas by looking at the convergence between our core business as a provider of financial services, and the needs of Africa’s people, businesses and economies.
