The FY23 ESG Databook presents our performance against key material sustainability commitments and targets. It supports our annual reporting suite, which includes our Annual Report, Sustainability Report, Climate Change Report, Corporate Governance Statement and Modern Slavery Statement.
We have aligned our approach to sustainability with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will continue to work with our host governments as they strive to meet these goals. We have prioritised eight of the 17 SDGs for which we can have the greatest impact under the umbrella goals of People, Planet and Process.
