Reviewed each year by our HSEC committee, Group sustainability team and the teams from each of the commodity departments, our sustainability strategy is organised into four pillars: 

SD issues icons 1 Health


SD issues icons 1 Safety


SD issues icons 1 Environment


SD issues icons 1 Community

Community & human rights

Become a leader in the protection and improvement of our people’s and communities’ wellbeing.

Become a leader in workplace safety, eliminating fatalities and injuries.

Minimise any negative environmental impact from our operations and apply the precautionary principle in decision-making.

Foster sustainable growth and respect human rights wherever we operate.


Our strategy has clearly defined imperatives, objectives, priority areas and targets. It enables us to meet legislative requirements, manage the catastrophic hazards associated with our business, and maintain our societal licence to operate. Departments and assets have aligned their annual HSEC plans to the strategy.
