Sustainable Development commitment
We adopt this policy because:
Long term value creation depends on the sustainable development of our businesses and the communities in which we operate.
- Specific to our own operations we will meet or exceed all legal requirements and develop, implement and maintain management systems to ensure we:
- Operate in a manner which safeguards the health and safety of all our stakeholders.
- Promote the efficient use of resources including the reduction and prevention of pollution.
- Strive to be a preferred employer by providing a work environment in which all employees are treated fairly, with respect and can realize their full potential.
- Engage suppliers and contractors who promote sustainable development and encourage responsible use of our products and services through the supply chain.
- Develop partnerships with our customers to achieve sustainable outcomes.
- Promote good relationships with the communities in which we operate.
