How we Create Value

We seek to operate a sustainable business with regard to the interests of all our major stakeholders in terms of profitability, people and planet.

Our inputs are the resources (or ‘capitals’) that we use in the process of creating value for our shareholders. These are deployed in or affect our business activities.
 

Outputs – ultimately the outcomes of how we create value – are what emerge from the interactions between us and our major stakeholders as part of our day-to-day business, including impact on the communities we operate in.
