We create innovative solutions that enable our customers to improve their safety and quality performance, reduce their environmental footprint, become more efficient in their processes, and reduce costs.

We aim to deliver sustainable, profitable growth to provide our shareholders with a superior return on their investment, whilst providing our employees with a safe workplace where they are recognised, developed and properly rewarded.

Our Sustainability initiative embodies this purpose. It sets out the Group’s formal objectives and targets for supporting our customers, our employees and our communities, and for protecting our planet for future generations. It is embedded in the Group’s overall strategy and informs how we deliver on the Group’s execution priorities.

The key objectives and priorities of our Sustainability initiative are outlined here. They were defined following the identification and analysis of the Group’s most important and material sustainability risks and opportunities.
