In 2014 Trialogue supported Sanlam in positioning the sustainability function within the business. The aim was to facilitate a critical review of Sanlam’s sustainability management framework in the context of the business. Trialogue assisted in this process by assessing the structure and composition of Sanlam’s sustainability management framework against lead practice. We also undertook a benchmarking process, comparing the framework against local and international peers. The findings of these processes were used to inform an internal engagement process, where the materiality of Sanlam’s issues were mapped against the business response.
