Sustainability

Sustainability underpins the Group’s strategic business priorities and is intrinsic to our values.

Sustainability is a broad discipline with many different facets. It is crucial we establish our key priorities so that we can allocate appropriate time, resources and investment.

To do this, we focus on six priority areas to balance the broad environmental and societal benefits of our business with potential impacts arising from our operations.

Through the effective management of these priority areas we have the opportunity to reduce our impacts and create and influence positive outcomes. Acting in a sustainable way not only protects and creates long-term value for our shareholders; it benefits all of our stakeholders.

Health and safety

Protecting the health and safety of our people, supply chains and the broader communities in which we operate.

Environment

Creating opportunities to improve the environmental performance of our operations and those of our customers.

Products and technology

Embedding innovation into product development to help our customers increase resource efficiency, operate more safely and become more resilient to the changing climate.

Our people

Respecting and valuing the people who work in and with our business: their motivation, development and security are imperative to our business success.

Our Communities

Working with, and adding value to, the communities in which we operate.

Ethics

Doing business the right way for positive impact; working in an ethical and transparent manner at all times and selecting supply chains and business partners that share our ethos.
