Performance & Targets
In 2015 we continued to drive further improvements across the business and extended the scope of our CR performance reporting.
Our Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) relate to the business strategy and drive the sustainable development of the business. Since we started our CR journey in 2007, we have seen continued improvement in our sustainability performance against baseline data.
We measure and report internally on our performance against each KPI and performance is reviewed by the CR Committee.
Our aim is to set industry leading standards, providing our customers with the assurance that we are constantly striving to achieve the highest possible operational standards. Our global policies provide guidance to countries as to how they should implement their business activity. Thereby ensuring we have a consistent approach to managing risk and embedding the required practices and behaviours globally.
