Creating sustainable value

We are a responsible business and we take our environmental stewardship, climate risk, health and safety and social responsibilities very seriously. We have put in place a governance structure to ensure we continue to develop our action plans and scrutinise progress against our sustainability strategy and goals.

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for our Sustainable Building Framework and the company’s performance on climate- and other ESG-related matters, with delegated responsibility to the Sustainability Committee. The Committee provides oversight across the business and our supply chain and is responsible for ensuring the Board has the detailed understanding needed to inform its decision-making.
