Our Sustainable Business strategy is guided by a Board-level ESG Committee whose responsibilities include reviewing and assessing the implementation of our strategy, policies and practises with respect to ESG. It is assisted by the Head of Sustainability and meets at least once a year with additional meetings organised if required to discuss material ESG-related issues and developments.
A member of the Board of Directors has assumed direct responsibility for CR/ESG topics and chairs the Corporate Responsibility (CR) Steering Committee, the members of which include all relevant heads of department. The Committee also meets at least once a year, and is charged with overseeing strategic guidance for CR topics and providing direction to the CR Department.
The CR Department acts as a cross-departmental interface, working with all relevant departments to implement and monitor CR programs and initiatives at an operational level. It is also charged with preparing the Group’s materiality analyses and CR reporting and responds to investor enquiries and rating agency requirements on ESG topics.
This structure means that our commitment to sustainability receives due consideration at the Board level, as well as at the operational management level.
