Our Ethos

At McNab’s we understand that sustainable living is the best way to create long-lasting positive physical and mental energy. We believe energy is a multifaceted phenomenon that comes not only from the food we eat and the way we look after our bodies, but also from the environments we live and work in, the people we associate with, and the thoughts we think.

Energise yourself through the power of thought by subscribing to our daily motivational quote. We also add a little bit of extra energy to every McNab’s sachet (SuperCharge, SuperChill and SuperGuard) with a motivational quote card.




Our Stance on Climate Change

Robert Swan, famous polar explorer and environmentalist said, The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.

McNab’s is challenging that belief by showing how businesses do not have to pursue profit at the expense of people and the planet, and rely on someone else to fix their mess.

We have shown, over and over again, that putting the planet and people first is also great for profit. For example, in 2009 we built our award-winning head quarters, The Energy Works. As South Africa’s first truly green office building The Energy Works is almost entirely self sufficient, relying on solar power and collected rain water. We are therefore immune to rolling blackouts and increasing electricity prices.

We hope to inspire business, government and civil society to follow our lead so that all sectors of society work together towards addressing climate change and our increasingly poisoned planet. After all, we all share the same planet, breathe the same air and want our children to have a future that is worth saving.
