The Group understands the importance of the SDGs adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 to address significant economic, environmental and social challenges.

We strive to make our own contribution to the attainment of these global goals by implementing fair and transparent business practices, reducing the impacts that our operations have on the environment and local communities and maximising the positive values that we can bring to society.
