Our aspirational goals

Our aim is to make cleaner, greener energy options accessible and affordable for as many customers and businesses as possible, without negatively impacting the environment. To drive the transition to cleaner energy, we have committed to replacing all the fossil fuel volume we sourced in 2015 with 100% renewably and sustainably sourced energy by 2040.

Our sustainability activities are guided by five aspirational goals. These are: improving health, safety and well-being; embedding innovation; sustaining the environment; enhancing employee and community development; safeguarding integrity.

Our goals were developed through a materiality assessment and used to create a group-level sustainability agenda, meaning all our business units report on them.

Aspirational goals

Setting priorities is vital in order to make real impact. We engaged with our stakeholders worldwide to identify the most important issues, which were mapped against the importance to stakeholders and significance to business.

So, how are we doing?

Every year, we publish a report on our sustainability performance

Improving health, safety and well-being

Every work colleague, contractor and customer deserves a safe and healthy place to work and a clean place to live in, today and for future generations.

As a company, it is both our moral obligation and core value to make sustained health and safety excellence the foundation of our culture.
