“We are committed to being world leaders in sustainability. It is as important to us commercially as it is to the societies in which we operate. As a major global employer we know we can play a significant role in improving people’s lives, strengthening their communities, and protecting their environment.

This is what sustainability is all about, and it is a responsibility we take very seriously.

I am proud of what we have achieved in this area  – not only through our corporate efforts but also from the huge contribution made by our team across the globe. I’m looking forward to building on what we’ve achieved so far, and finding ways to do more, to do better, and to continue to prove that sustainability is something that matters to everybody.”

Our commitments

We are investing in the long term in our business around the world, driving best practice, investing in innovation and measuring our progress, always seeking to do more. We focus on four commitments to:

  • Minimise impacts on our environment by better managing natural resources and emissions
  • Invest in our people by embracing diversity, encouraging personal development and providing them with the tools to drive change
  • Ensure the safety of our people and strive for zero harm at work
  • Build a vibrant, secure and resilient society through strategic investment in the issues that affect our people and our industry

We look for ways to innovate and improve across all of our commitments. We are dedicated to sharing what we do with our customers, suppliers and partners to encourage sustainable practice.
