How we manage sustainable development

Our shared imperatives help us to focus on what’s important locally and to build sustainable development into our business planning and future growth.

Individual operations are ultimately held accountable for their own performance, which often forms part of our senior managers’ performance objectives and remuneration.

The Sustainable Development Way is at the heart of our approach to sustainable development (SD), providing a consistent framework for managing SD and focusing all of our operations’ efforts and resource priorities. The SD Way is supported by a suite of policies and position papers, as well as guidelines, training, and tools for building capability and sharing best practice globally.

Sustainability Assessment Matrix tool (SAM)


This tool provides detailed information from our Sustainable Assessment Matrix (SAM). You can use it to explore the performance of our businesses around the world across our 10 sustainable development priorities. From 2015 SAM will measure performance against our new five shared imperatives.
