Working sustainably is embedded throughout how we work. We work with the communities we are a part of, and our stakeholders to set clear sustainable actions and goals, that will contribute to a better shared future for all.
In FY19 our approach to sustainability was subject to independent assurance and can be found here.
Through our initiatives and activities, we contribute to the advancement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September 2015 that seek to address the world’s greatest challenges. The SDGs build on the work undertaken through the Millennium Development Goals, but have a greater focus on the involvement of the private sector.
The impacts of climate change are increasingly being felt around the world: weather patterns, regulations and laws and people’s expectations are all changing. We’re working to avoid and manage climate change risks, and we’re committed to the effort to reduce carbon emissions to avoid our shared earth warming, as agreed to by nations participating in the Paris Agreement of 2015.
