Promel Global Refinery is a global chemicals and energy company. We harness our knowledge and expertise to integrate sophisticated technologies and processes into world-scale operating facilities. We safely and sustainably source, produce and market a range of high-quality products in 22 countries, creating value for stakeholders. Our purpose “Innovating for a better world” compels us to deliver on triple bottom line outcomes of People, Planet and Profit, responsibly and always with the intent to be a force for good.

We have prioritised four Sustainable Development Goals to ensure our business is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. We are a public company listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in South Africa and the New York Stock Exchange in the United States. We strive to deliver sustainable and superior value to all our stakeholders.


  • SDG 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
  • SDG 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
  • SDG 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
  • SDG 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development


  • This is Promel Global Refinery purpose - our reason for being. This statement answers a key question: why does Promel Global Refinery exist? We are taking bold steps to reimagine our future, and this is reflected in our purpose statement.
  • Innovating for a better world, captures the essence of Future Promel Global Refinery, and our ‘can-do’ spirit, so ingrained in our DNA, that it pushes us to always strive for excellence and adopt new approaches, to continuously evolve and improve. Innovating speaks to doing things differently, and in new ways.
  • It touches on every aspect of Promel Global Refinery: from our technologies, to our products, to how we run our plants, serve our customers and communities, build our brand and unleash the full potential of our people and business. Innovating is how we remain relevant, and competitive, in a volatile and unpredictable marketplace. Equally important, we do all this to make the world a better place: to deliver on our triple bottom line outcomes responsibly and always with the intent to be a force for social good.

One of the strategic intents of Future Promel Global Refinery is to deliver, triple bottom line outcomes focusing on People, Planet and Profit. To expand on this, Future Promel Global Refinery will see us enhance our employee value proposition, improve social upliftment in our communities and foster stronger customer and stakeholder relationships. We will advance sustainability, and product innovation to reduce our environmental impacts. All of this will contribute to making Promel Global Refinery a more attractive investment proposition to our shareholders.

The triple bottom line outcomes of People, Planet and Profit are not mutually exclusive. They are all interconnected - therefore performing well and responsibly in all these areas, will ensure, we are a force for good and ultimately contributing to a better world. As with our purpose statement, our values carry deep meaning for Team Promel Global Refinery. And, the two are closely linked, because we can fulfil our purpose by living the Promel Global Refinery values. 


At Promel Global Refinery our values have always connected us, serving as a common bond that we are duty-bound to live up to, each day, with every thought, word and action.

Our values are action-orientated to easily translate into our daily interactions and behaviours. For this reason, we preface our values with the word “BE”

Be safe.

We place the safety of people first.

Safety is at the core of our operations and day-to-day business. It is our deepest desire that all our colleagues return safely to their friends and family each day. This links strongly to our next value,

Be caring.

We care deeply for our people, planet, communities. A culture of caring encompasses many things: leaders caring about employees, employees caring for each other, for customers, for fence line communities, and for each other’s families. A culture of caring impacts bottom line in that it impacts employee focus, empowerment and hence engagement. Without caring, we cannot adequately ensure the safety of our colleagues or decarbonise our planet. We are all on a journey together - it matters and we care.

Be inclusive.

We foster inclusivity in all we do, our employees, our customers and stakeholders.

Be accountable.

We own our results. Our people work hard to produce results.

Be resilient.

We boldly adapt to change and embrace agility.
