An Overview

Sustainability is an integral part of our business.

We believe in driving long-term sustainable economic development and value creation for our stakeholders by protecting the health and safety of our people and community, minimising the environmental impact of our operations, respecting human rights and sharing benefits with the community.

We have taken a holistic view in setting our sustainability goals 2025 and over the next five years, we will focus on expanding the work towards creating positive changes. We do not view our goals as independent targets, but rather as a collective scorecard that requires tangible progress across different functions.

The set five-year goals provide us with significant opportunity to improve our performance and will also enable us to focus on reducing the negative impacts across our value chain.

This exercise plays a pivotal role in the way we frame our strategy. During FY 2018-19, we engaged a third-party consultant to carry out a detailed assessment involving an extensive set of internal and external stakeholders.
