For us, sustainability is about using our scale and our expertise to enable a more responsible, balanced and sustainable future. As well as delivering services that promote sustainable development, we manage our sustainability performance through our global management system and develop sustainability programs which inspire a wide range of initiatives across our affiliates.
Our management system
Our sustainability management system is the framework by which we:
- Identify our sustainability impacts and material aspects
- Set targets
- Conduct audits
- Implement programs
- Measure our progress
- Analyze and improve our performance
- Engage with stakeholders
The system is built around four pillars: Professional Excellence, People, Environment and Community. Each is supported by goals which are the responsibility of everyone in the organization. These ‘shared goals’ define our strategy and direction in support of our sustainability vision. We combine a top-down and bottom-up approach to embedding sustainability throughout our global business. As an industry leader, we are committed to upholding the highest standards to ensure our business operates in a sustainable way. We align our management system to ISO 26000, and our data monitoring and reporting on material issues to the AA 1000 Principles, the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 Guidelines, as well as specific frameworks such as the ISO 14064 International Standard for emissions inventories and verification. We have also begun to monitor our sustainability performance in the context of our value to society and expect to be able to report on this in future years.
