Our Reporting Frameworks

In April 2024, we published the 4th edition of our ESG report (see report here) detailing our ESG strategy, performance and ongoing progress. This report was developed based on feedback from our stakeholders and metrics used by corporate responsibility and sustainability rating providers. In 2023, we continued to enhance our disclosures and transparency by aligning our reporting with best practice frameworks including: Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework.
