Our sustainability strategy
Our purpose is driven by our commitment to being a sustainable business partner, investment proposition and employer.
Our sustainability strategy sets a clear line of sight to key commitments around our people, the environment and our operations, to ensure that our strategy and operations align with our values.
- Reflecting our Values in how we do business, taking a balanced, socially responsible approach
- Providing long-term, rewarding careers in a safe and inclusive working environment
- Taking our environmental responsibilities seriously
Our focus is underpinned by a detailed materiality assessment that defines and prioritises the issues that matter most to our stakeholders. To support our focus, the Board has adopted three UN Sustainability Development Goals to inform our strategy, enable prioritisation and planning.
