The Board places the highest priority on conducting the Group’s business in an ethical, considerate and responsible manner, placing the needs of our key stakeholders, the environment and communities in which we operate at the core of everything we do.
The Board believes that long-term sustainable profitability is driven by a strong culture of corporate responsibility. The origin of this culture stems from a robust governance structure that ensures strong stewardship throughout the business, starting with the Board of Directors. Leading by example, the Board must conduct itself and set core values, corporate strategy and business objectives in accordance with good environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) principles. To achieve meaningful results requires a strong culture of ESG to be entrenched in the organisation at every level.
The Board have adopted a Corporate Responsibility framework which aligns with the business objectives and sets out the Group’s ESG strategy. Progress against this ESG strategy is assessed on a monthly basis in Board meetings.
