Sustainability reporting

Reporting on our sustainability progress

Transparency in disclosing our sustainability progress is essential to build trust and demonstrate delivery on our commitments. 

We are committed to continuously improving our sustainability performance, optimising our positive contributions and minimising adverse impacts by protecting and respecting our people, partnering with local communities, operating ethically and responsibly, addressing climate change and managing our environmental impact.

Our sustainability reporting describes how our business-wide processes support our sustainability objectives, how we manage our most important sustainability topics and the progress that we have made during the reporting period.

We prepare our sustainability reporting in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards, the ICMM Mining Principles and Position Statements and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Modern Slavery Statement

Modern Slavery Statement

We recognise the significant role South32 can play in addressing modern slavery within our sphere of influence.

Each financial year we produce a Modern Slavery Statement that outlines our systems, processes and capacity within our organisation and supply chains to prevent modern slavery risks from occurring.

The statement responds to both the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act 2015.
