Reinforcing action with accountability

Setting standards for a responsible business

We recognise that there is an ever-increasing focus on how businesses impact on society and the environment and our stakeholders are looking for both action and accountability.  That’s why we are committed to sustainable procurement, ethical supply chains, and the highest standards in corporate management. Additionally, we are choosing to report against independent, international standards such as GRESB and the Global Reporting Initiative so that our impact is both measurable and transparent.

We will engage with all stakeholders to ensure together we are acting responsibly and for the benefit of our people and the planet.
