“I think it is not only important for the industry but it is important for us to make sure that we carry the torch forward and therefore never hesitate to take certain risks in sustainability. You have to be leading and be a mental leader in the field and to do that together with Simon (Simon Susman, CEO, Woolworth SA) is a big inspiration. He has built a company that is inspirationally strong in South Africa under difficult circumstances so we are very proud to share this with them.”
