The vision of the Illovo Group is to be a world-class and highly efficient organisation, operating in Africa, adding value to its core products of sugar, fibre and molasses. Illovo seeks to optimise growth, reduce cost of production and enhance shareholder wealth along with stakeholder value; achieving a sustainable, balanced and integrated economic, social and environmental performance.
Our Values are our foundation; they represent what we as Illovo stand for. They form part of our “DNA” and govern all that we do. They guide our celebration of the past - our heritage and our achievements – and inspire our plans for the future, through our goals and objectives.
Integrity - Upholding Our Values
We consistently live our values, treat all individuals in a fair and consistent manner, as well as act in accordance with ethical guidelines and statutory requirements. We are welcomed by the communities in which we operate, are trusted by investors, and our employees are proud to work for us.
Empowerment - Empowering Our People
We are committed to the development of our people through the continued acquisition of new knowledge and skills. We use various methodologies to enhance the learning experience and the transfer of skills. We earn each other’s trust, provide constructive feedback and hold ourselves and others accountable for performance development.
Inclusiveness - Embracing Diversity
We leverage on our diversity in order to maximize performance by actively supporting transformation initiatives. Because we value innovation, creativity and inclusion, we respect each other’s opinions and perspectives, treat people with dignity and respect, and build culturally diverse teams.
Commitment - Working Collaboratively
We are committed to the success of the whole and together look for ways to co-operate and support each other, even when the immediate benefit is one-way. We value strong networks and working relationships that are underpinned by teamwork, open communication, trust and respect. We invest time and other resources to build and nurture high-performing teams.
Accountability - Delivery Focused
We find ways to break through resistance and obstacles, and strive to seek new methods in order to continuously improve. We align our day-to-day work with the Illovo vision and strategic intent, and our objectives, action plans and commitments are delivery focused. We also engage in celebrating our achievements.
