31 May 2019

Dangote Cement Plc has published its first standalone sustainability report and has confirmed its readiness to support the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) in its ambition to host a sustainable stock exchange and capital market in Nigeria.

Dangote took part in the ‘Facts behind the Sustainability Report’ (FBSR), an interactive forum created by the NSE to promote environmental, social and governance performance and reporting among Nigerian companies.

 Joseph Makouju, group managing director of Dangote Cement Plc, said: "We have identified and are leveraging sustainability to drive regulatory compliance, proactive risk management and building trust and goodwill in the countries, markets and communities where we operate."

"Our 2018 sustainability report is highly symbolic as it reflects the seriousness with which sustainability, as part of our core business model, is being taken at Dangote Cement. It also demonstrates our operationalism of global partnership principles such as the United Nations Global Compact and Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the mainstreaming of sustainability to achieve goal priorities such as the Paris Climate Agreement," he added.
