If we can make things that last,
why don‘t we?
Planning for tomorrow doesn’t just mean ensuring financial security. It’s about doing things properly, and doing them for good. In this out-with-the-old, in-with-the-new throw away society we live in, it’s easy to forget about those who will come after us.
There’s a light bulb in California that’s been burning non-stop for 117 years. It makes you wonder, when did building things that last become so last century? At Sanlam, we believe there’s never been a better time to get back to building things to last, especially in a time when the world needs it most.
We’re responsible for building a world for others to inherit.
That means finding sustainable solutions to our unique challenges, so we can create lasting value that protects our environment, uplifts communities and empowers individuals to live their best lives possible.
