Balancing profit, people and planet
Welcome to naspers.org, the integrated sustainability platform for the Naspers group worldwide.
While still in developmental phase, this platform illustrates our combined social awareness, and focuses on projects that address mostly social and environmental issues. Our intention is to demonstrate our standing as a good corporate citizen, entrenching Naspers’ core value of being useful in the communities we serve.
In time, naspers.org will demonstrate the nature and quality of our group’s impact on society and the planet as a whole. By harnessing our global infrastructure, expertise and ability to innovate and adapt in a changing world, we aim to address challenges such as education, skills development and environmental sustainability. We hope to improve the living conditions of our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate, ultimately balancing profit, people, planet.
