Integrating Sustainability Throughout Our Operations

In keeping with our worldwide responsibilities, we have made sustainability a vital component of our strategic thinking and business practices.

Supporting Global Sustainability Objectives

As an organisation, we support the sustainable development agenda of the United Nations and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), which collectively form a blueprint to build a better future for all. We have aligned each of our sustainability topics to specific UN SDGs. This gives greater direction and meaning to our ongoing sustainability initiatives, while guiding the continuing process by which we are expanding our commitments year by year.
