Creating a Better Tomorrow

Better Tomorrow Plan 2015To help us respond to global challenges, we developed our sustainability strategy to 2020, the Better Tomorrow Plan, in 2009. It outlines a clear set of pledges and provides a roadmap for what we want to achieve. This year we plan to assess our success so far and formulate new objectives going forward.

What will a better tomorrow look like?

A healthier society. Resilient communities. Stimulating workplaces where people can fulfill their potential. A thriving natural environment.

Given the breadth of our reach, we have the opportunity to enhance the quality of life of everyone we serve.
