Targeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our sustainability strategy is further inspired by the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and the 2019 World Bank Pathways for Tanzania.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals

Importantly, the 17 UN SDGs were created with country-level actions in mind, and even though we support all UN SDGs, not all goals and targets are directly relevant for our business. Therefore, we have assessed the goals to find those most relevant for us, and framed the goals and relevant underlying targets in terms of their applicability to our business. We have a specific focus on goals 7, 8 & 13, and their underlying targets given our business activities.

Universal access to modern energy.

World Bank Pathways in Tanzania

In 2019, the World Bank released a report detailing the main environmental and urban and industrial challenges facing Tanzania, whilst also suggesting four pathways for tackling them. Specifically, Pathway 3 is important for us as it focuses on tackling the widespread use of charcoal and firewood as fuel sources. A key element of this is to improve access to modern and reliable energy sources, reinforcing the role of natural gas as a transitional fuel in terms of both its lower emissions and heightened efficiency relative to prevailing fuel sources in Tanzania.
