We have acknowledged our ESG responsibilities, with a plan for a sustainable future that includes clearly defined targets. The world is changing, and we are investing in new technologies and alternative ways of operating to ensure our people and our customers have the spaces they need to succeed.

It’s part of a wider journey in which we are encouraging our investors, contractors, consultants, service providers, capital advisors, industry bodies, regulators, and other community partners to support sustainable business practices. The collective impact of these individual contributions will lead to better environmental, social and economic outcomes for everyone.
