SAB Beyond Awards

The South African Breweries (SAB) will host its first ever Beyond Awards, a sustainability recognition platform, in partnership with ESG Africa events taking place on 3 October 2023.

In addition to this, the brewer will also be a gold sponsor of the ESG Africa Conference taking place from the 4-5 October at the Sandton Convention Centre and aims to bring business leaders from across Africa together to discuss, debate and find solutions to some of the most pressing issues faced in driving the adoption of sustainable practices.

SAB believes embracing sustainable principles is a strategic imperative and urges all organisations to respond to the increasing need for ethical and environmentally conscious operations. This approach creates a more sustainable and responsible business ecosystem – one that SAB is proud to be driving.

The Beyond Awards falls under the brewery’s strategic sustainability framework, SAB Beyond, which prioritizes entrepreneurship, circular packaging, sustainable agriculture, water stewardship, climate, smart drinking & moderation, diversity, equity and inclusion. 

The awards will be host to four categories, including:

Sustainable Development Goals Champion Award

This award seeks to recognise the organisation with the most comprehensive and impactful overall contribution towards the attainment of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Best Sustainability Report Award

This award rewards the most comprehensive, relevant and engaging sustainability report

Best Sustainability Project Award

African Trailblazer Award

This award acknowledges remarkable individuals who contribute towards advancing sustainability in Africa. From business leaders; media personalities; civil society or government officials – any individual with a proven footprint in sustainability may apply

Entry to all categories are free of charge and the deadline for completion is September 6th 2023. Winners will be announced at an official ceremony on the 3rd of October 2023.

These awards aim to provide clear insights into African sustainability initiatives, demonstrating broad-wide company commitments to addressing the issues that matter most, and fostering meaningful change on our continent.

The awards ceremony further aims to anchor sustainability in South Africa as well as to provide a platform to share global best practices on various types of sustainability initiatives. The acceleration of the sustainability agenda is one that African countries are becoming passionate about hence why SAB believes this awards ceremony is crucial as it presents us with an opportunity to showcase leaders in the field.
