Sustainable Development Goals

 

We are aligned to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and have set out the key areas where our business and values are particularly focused. Each of these areas are closely aligned to our business purpose and where we feel we can have the greatest contribution based on what we do and where we operate.

THE CHALLENGE

The climate change emergency is real. There is no country that is not experiencing the dramatic effects of climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions are more than 50 per cent higher than in 1990. Global warming is causing long-lasting changes to our climate system, which threatens irreversible consequences if we do not act.4
