Sustainability Commitment

We recognise that as part of our overarching ambition of becoming South Africa's leading health and wellness omnichannel retailer, we will continuously be sourcing materials and products from various suppliers, both locally and internationally.

At the same time, our sustainability ambitions are aligned to our purpose, whereby we aspire to enable individual health journeys that have a positive impact on our society's collective wellness, and that of our planet.

To this end, our sustainability initiatives aim to go beyond the minimisation and mitigation of the environmental impacts of our business and move towards the regeneration and thriveability thereof. Although we will adhere to all compliance requirements, our approach will
go beyond compliance.

Our journey to meeting these ambitions is underpinned by a framework that addresses not only our entire value chain but also elements outside of it, to ensure wider positive impacts. We focus on five core themes:

ethical raw materials, striving for zero waste to landfill,
and where possible, sourcing from local suppliers.

our journey towards zero-carbon logistics and
materials management.
