The challenges of sustainability
Sustainability drives everything we do. To us, this is about addressing the big challenges we all face today. It is about how we can ensure a high quality of life, for all, both now and for generations to come. This means we need to balance economic prosperity and social equality with looking after the one planet on which we live.
We define sustainability as an enduring and balanced approach to economic activity, environmental responsibility and societal benefit. Our goal, therefore, is to make a positive contribution to society and to sustain the communities in which we operate, through the value we create, the employment we provide, and through the social value of the products that we develop and manufacture.
In the modern world, Corporate Citizenship means much more than philanthropy and respecting the people and communities impacted by our operations. As a good corporate citizen in the 21st Century, we believe that we have a duty to play our part in moving towards a sustainable global society.
