Ensuring continued success through sustainable development

We recognise that continued success is dependent upon sustainable development and we are committed to good corporate governance. We take Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) responsibilities very seriously.
We acknowledge our duty to act in a socially responsible manner at all times. Rather than simply meeting compliance standards, we have taken a proactive approach to sustainable development with a range of initiatives that aim to benefit the communities we serve, help preserve the natural environment and promote the health and safety of our people.


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.

Our commitment

Specific to our own operations we will meet 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

  • Promote good relationships with the communities in which we operate.
