Powering better lives through value creation.
Our purpose is the motivation that has informed everything that we have done since our inception and will continue to drive our direction in the future. Value creation is central to our purpose and our vision as we aim to have a direct and positive impact through our business on external challenges such as climate change and socio-economic development.
Our overarching approach to value creation is driven by stewardship and a responsibility to minimise our negative impact, preserve value and, where possible, create value for our stakeholders and the natural environment on which we rely.
Our operating context
We monitor our operating context to understand the forces in our macro-economic context, our markets and in other social and environmental trends, such as climate change, that may present opportunities or risks to our business model and thus our ability to create value.
