Our Impact Report has been enhanced significantly in terms of breadth and depth compared to previous editions. It provides a comprehensive insight into our ESG initiatives and reflects our commitment to continuous improvement and accountability. In our relentless pursuit of transparency, we strictly adhere to established reporting norms and engage in open dialogue with external stakeholders. The environmental data disclosed in this report has undergone a limited assurance audit, and we are aiming for broader assurance in future editions.1
The Impact Report will be published annually, reflecting our progress and achievements throughout the financial year, spanning from June to May. This edition is the result of a thorough internal consultation process, and it draws information from various business units. Feedback on the report and our sustainability goals is welcomed and will be carefully considered. As a proud signatory of the UN Global Compact, we remain committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and have integrated them throughout our business practices and this report.
