Our sustainability framework

We strive to achieve the sustainability pillars that defines our more important priorities as an organisation.

Supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

These selected SDGs are where we can make the biggest contribution to sustainable development in the markets where we operate.

Sustainability governance

To achieve our aspirations and embed responsible and sustainable practices into our business, a robust governance structure is important.

Materiality assessment

We focus our strategies and efforts on the material sustainability-related risks and opportunities with the most significant impact that reflect our most significant areas of impact and those that are of greatest importance to our key stakeholders.

Stakeholder engagement

We engage with our stakeholders at every level of the business on a regular basis to understand their expectations and interests.

Responsible and sustainable financing

The growing threat of climate action and the urgent need for sustainable development brings opportunities and a responsibility to help manage the risks.


We aim to demonstrate transparency and accountability to our stakeholders with our annual sustainability report.

Through our report, we hope to be responsive to stakeholders’ interests and concerns, in order to build mutual understanding, trust, and respect. For more information on our sustainability efforts and performance relating to each of our material ESG factors:
