Question and answer
is the sasol industry sustainable?
For Sasol, there are three ways by which continuous improvement in environmental management can be achieved. Environmental auditing is seen as invaluable for continuous improvement in environmental performance. [ Only be determining which elements of environmental management are already in place and how well we are progressing towards implementation of these elements, can we begin to plan improvement. As part of the long-term environmental management strategy of Sasol, environmental audits have been conducted since 1992. In addition to an environmental management strategy as well as a risk
management strategy that had previously been developed at Sasol Chemical Industries in Sasolburg, an audit was carried out at this plant in 1992 by external auditors to establish a baseline for the R900 million renovation project that was completed in 1994. In this audit, a situation analysis of the current environment was conducted with regard to climate, hydrology, atmospheric conditions, waste and water systems as well as acoustics and aesthetics. The existing demographic and socio-economic situations in the surrounding communities were also described. The current main impacts of the Sasol Chemical Industries complex as well as the potential impacts of the renovation project on the physical environment, infrastructure and communities were investigated. Legislation, standards and permit conditions bearing on Sasol's activities were identified and Sasol's performance was measured against these. This comprehensive audit also included the examination of major emissions and their dispersal, the situation with regard to hazardous wastes and the health aspects of waste dumps. At the Secunda complex, audits on various plants have also been performed. The main objectives of the audits were to optimize operations, minimize waste streams and to compare design and actual operation parameters. Results of the audits are also used in order to determine compliance with legal and permit requirements. Compliance audits with regard to emissions from plants, that are classified as listed processes according to the Atmospheric Pollution Prevention Act (Act 45 of 1965), are conducted annually. ]
