Rogers and Company Ltd: Outstanding Commitment to Sustainability Mauritius 2021


Rogers and Company Limited (Rogers) started its business operations in 1899 and has since then operated a sustainable and ethical set of businesses. Listed on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius, Rogers operates in four main served markets, FinTech, Hospitality, Logistics and Property, across 10 countries including Mauritius.

Sustainability has always been an important focus for the group of some 5,000 employees spread across 110 worksites. Rogers is responsible to drive positive changes through its businesses to embrace a sustainable and inclusive future. Rogers believes that this ecosystem will shape and form sustainable but profitable opportunities, and that knowledge sharing will strengthen partnerships and lead to better Environmental, Social, and Governance practices across business lines. Leveraging on its core values of Leadership, Agility and Excellence, the group has the ability to anticipate change, adapt and evolve over time.

Rogers is a market leader with a track record for delivering on commitments, on-time. A 10-member Sustainability and Inclusiveness Board Committee guides business, and Rogers recently published a detailed sustainability report outlining current footprint, objectives to reduce the same and key accomplishments during the year. It offset the carbon footprint of the printed report by planting trees on its 2,500-acre domain in Bel Ombre, an eco-focused region that is set in the heart of a UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve. The region is increasingly used as a laboratory to incubate the Group’s sustainability practices.

Rogers identifies five pillars for its initiatives: climate change, circular economies, biodiversity, inclusive development, and vibrant communities. It has defined non-financial KPIs that align with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and SigneNatir, the sustainability and inclusiveness initiative led by Business Mauritius. Progress will be disclosed in the next report. The judging panel marks the group’s ongoing journey with the 2021 award for Outstanding Commitment to Sustainability (Mauritius).
