Our Responsible Business Plan
Our Responsible Business Plan provides the framework for managing sustainable development of our business which delivers value for our stakeholders and for us. It focuses on those areas most impacted by our business strategy and includes associated objectives, targets and KPIs agreed within the business.
Responsible business issues that emerge from quarterly reviews of risk profiles across the business are assessed based on the principles of the AA1000 framework*. The assessment takes into account feedback from our stakeholder engagement and best practice within and outside of our industry, as well as our Code of Conduct and policy requirements. The outcomes of this process inform the continued development of our Responsible Business Plan.Download our plan (PDF 228kb)
