Sustainability governance Learn more

We have a culture of transparent reporting – internally and externally – which gives management and shareholders the confidence that things are working as they should across all levels, and when they are not, that we can move quickly to address them.

Governance starts with active oversight and engagement from our Board. This is fundamental to our approach. We also have a world-class set of policies and standards that form the backbone of our management systems across a range of disciplines within the Company. These are given life through robust engagement and oversight of our Executive Management team, which helps to ensure that risks, impacts and opportunities are identified and managed. We also have a systematic, well-planned and coordinated approach to internal and external assurance – which brings an additional level of scrutiny and oversight to our organisational system.

Risk management Learn more
