Environmental, Social & Governance

We take our ESG responsibilities extremely serious and are focused on ensuring our impact makes a difference and our footprint is light.

Environment Strategy

We are taking action today, to tackle the environmental challenges facing our planet, ensuring we play our part as a Sustainability Leader, to safeguard it for generations to come.

We are focused on accelerating the steps required to reduce our Green House Gas (GHG) emissions, identify opportunities to eliminate waste from our operations by adopting circular economy principles and are committed to helping nature to flourish.


Green House Gas (GHG) Emission Reduction

Annual stepped approach to reduce GHG emission through efficiencies in our day to operations and aligning our carbon reduction ambitions to science-based emission targets

GHG Emmissions - 2026

Resource Reduction

Reducing the use of non-recyclable materials, replacing disposable materials and products with reusable materials and take measures to eliminate waste before it is created.

Our intention is to go beyond mitigating and remedying the negative impacts of waste once generated, but instead manage waste as a resource and create opportunities for waste prevention by adopting circularity measures.
