Open Letter to Sasol regarding Paper Wastage

Hi Marsja,

That’s excellent news!

May I suggest for 2010 that the approach is done the other away
around, perhaps?

Instead of “opting-out” of paper report, people would have to “opt-in”
for a paper report.

That way the default position of SASOL becomes saving paper.

I’d take bets that less than 3200 will insist on receiving the paper copy.

Now, who do I speak to at SASOL regarding a recycling initiative at
petrol stations?

Kind regards,
Henk
