During the FY 2016 we initiated a strategic shift towards shared value, which emphasizes the link to the growth and profit drivers of the business strategy.
Our shared value strategy prioritises local supply chain development, which enables us to focus on the creation of shared value – in both financial and social terms – within our core supply chain operations.
The local supply chain focus is supported by four strategic enablers that contribute to the societal value delivered by our operations, namely, employee empowerment, resource efficiency, socio-economic development and governance, ethics and accountability.
Our sustainability reporting framework highlights our drive to create shared value for our stakeholders, with a sustained focus on addressing and reporting on the material environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues associated with our operations.
Further information on our strategy, progress against our strategic enablers and our future approach can be found in both our 2017 integrated annual report and sustainability overview report, which are available on our group website.
