About our report

Our integrated report is the main communication avenue to our shareholders and other stakeholders in Nampak Limited who are interested in our commitment to create value and ensure a sustainable business into the future. In this report we provide a balanced and accurate assessment of our financial, economic, social, governance and environmental factors.

We report on the six capitals upon which we rely and that have an impact on our business. We also report on the operational and financial performance of Nampak together with the risks and opportunities that determine our material issues, our strategic response to them as well as our future view.

The group incurred R681 million in foreign exchange losses during the year, with operations in Nigeria contributing the majority of the loss.

Asset impairments of R360 million arose during the year primarily related to the conversion to aluminium of a tinplate line in Angola.
