How we manage sustainable development

Our shared imperatives help us to tackle the most material sustainable development issues for our business at a local and international level, embedding sustainable development into our business planning to drive long-term 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 (SD) Way is at the heart of our approach to 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.
