APPROACH AND STRATEGY
Our business model reflects our commitment to making a better world for our workforce, communities and society as a whole.
To ensure our values are adhered to, in 2021 we conducted a refresh of our materiality assessment and have outlined how our material topics interlink with and support our commitment to the UNSDGs. We also perform a materiality assessment every three years and plan to review and update it in 2024.
