We love this country – which is blessed with natural beauty, abundant resources and talented people.
We believe in South Africa’s future. We share the values set out in its constitution. And we say humbly: we want to play our part in ensuring that South Africa works for everyone.
That’s why on 23 August 2017, Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) signed a contract with South Africa, to commit to playing our part in creating a South Africa of increasing prosperity for all by harnessing the resources and capabilities of business in partnership with government and civil society to deliver economic growth, transformation and inclusion.
Undoubtedly there will be challenges along the road to delivering this, not least cleaning our own house of the corruption that has plagued this country – but within this contract and Integrity Pledge we are clear that is the past and we will no longer accept these practices.
We cannot, however, do this alone. To fulfil this contract, the government must also step up. It must commit to creating the conditions necessary for our great country to succeed, the economy to grow and for the South Africa of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s dream – where everyone prospers – will become a reality.
