Our People

Our People are essential to our success. By establishing a culture of safety, employee engagement and support for diversity in our workforce, we are able to do more, and be more, together.

Our People and our Sustainability Strategy

Our People is a key focus for our comprehensive sustainability strategy, which sets out short-term goals to 2020 and long-term goals to 2030 in six sustainability areas: Community, Our People, Water, Biodiversity, Energy and Climate Change and Air.

Our Vision for Our People

We engage and develop our people, and ensure everyone goes home safe and healthy every day.
