Environmental & Social Governance

ESG Framework

Focused on delivering sustainable environmental, financial and social value, responsibly.

Our ESG Framework is built around our Mission:

To develop

To make a real difference

To add value

Underpinned by our Care, Fair Dare values, our pursuit of developing, making a real difference and sustainably adding value is outlined and reported in by our 4 P’s (Planet People, Product and Policy), which are in turn aligned with specific SDGs, our ESG Principles, stakeholders, commitments and metrics. Our 4 P’s are interdependent and our Framework provides a structure to measure and report on our progress and assess performance.
