Partnerships to support our objectives

We partner with industry experts to drive a shared agenda to inspire the next generation. 

Safety, Health, Environment

Fulfilling our ambition to bring transformational solutions that address the world's material challenges relies on our people being safe and cared for and our operations being environmentally sustainable. 

Take care of each other

When we take care of each other we are more able to contribute to us being a productive, successful organisation and, most importantly, we are all able to go home without harm. 

Take care of the environment

When we take care of the environment and effectively manage our resources, we are more able to grow and be a sustainable business. 

Zero incidents, Zero accidents

Taking care of our safety and the environment is equally important whether we are at work or at home. It relies on us all behaving in the right way, drawing on our core behaviours to ensure we always do the right thing.
