Our values, experience and history tell us that we must work in a way that delivers real, lasting benefits.

Our purpose is to make a difference by developing natural resources, improving people’s lives now and for generations to come. We are trusted by our owners and partners to realise the potential of their resources.

Working sustainably is embedded throughout how we work. We work with the communities we are a part of, and our stakeholders to set clear sustainable actions and goals, that will contribute to a better shared future for all.


We are committed to high-quality governance, transparency and ethical business practices across the organisation.
Good governance sets the foundation for the respectful engagement we undertake with governments and communities in the areas where we operate.


The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) aim to create a better, fairer and more sustainable world by 2030. The 17 SDGs address the global challenges society faces, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, conservation and economic growth

We  contribute to these broader goals through working in partnership with many different stakeholders, from global to local.

The interconnectedness of the SDGs means that a positive contribution to one can have a multiplier effect, so we work to understand the linkages, manage and mitigate our impacts, and determine how we can make a positive contribution to those most relevant to our business and social value priorities.

Vision For Sustainability

Our sustainability Vision

focuses on four key areas; everybody going home safe and healthy every day, caring for the environment, developing and maintaining strong relationships with our communities and governments, and acting ethically and transparently.

Safety & Health

learning and sharing knowledge to improve how we maintain a safe and healthy workplace, through an emphasis on safety leadership, effective management of critical risks, a focus on health, hygiene and wellbeing and robust process safety management.


Community Engagement & Social Contribution

We have open and constructive approach to community engagement and investment.

We are committed to taking a leadership position on climate change. Climate change is the most pressing challenge of our generation as well as a once in a lifetime opportunity for economic growth and value creation that generates a better, cleaner, more sustainable world.

In a world dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, societal expectations on climate action remain high. Addressing them will, today more than ever, require businesses, governments and society to work together.
