Our purpose, strategy and values guide not only what we do, but how we do it. Every day, in support of our purpose and aligned with our values, our people work to deliver our strategy for the benefit of all our stakeholders.
Our purpose is to make a difference by developing natural resources, improving people's lives now and for generations to come. We are trusted by our owners and partners to realise the potential of their resources.
Our purpose is underpinned by a simple yet powerful strategy:
We deliver on our purpose and our strategy by aligning our workforce behind seven ‘breakthroughs’ – commitments which shape our annual business plans across South32, enabling us to focus on what’s important.
Our strategy outlines what we do to achieve our purpose and our values guide how we do it. Our values shape the way we behave and the standards we set for ourselves and others.
