CR reporting

Our CR reporting comprises a yearly performance statement and score, supported by regular reporting of our activities on this website.

By defining our purpose, updating our material issues, and setting stakeholder value measures and targets to 2025 we have a clear framework for reporting our CR performance over the next four years.

All our measures and targets have received an appropriate level of assurance, such as independent third party verification, regulatory reporting assurance processes or through our own internal audit team.

Our CR performance forms part of our broader performance, and since 2015, our Annual Report has been prepared in accordance with the principles set out in the International <IR> Framework. It shows how we create value by making business decisions that are environmentally sustainable, economically beneficial and socially responsible.

Our Annual Performance Report includes a number of metrics relating to CR performance across the six stakeholder groups identified in our purpose.

Full assurance statements are available for our Annual Reports and our Annual Performance Reports with our most material responsible business metrics being independently assured.

We also report our performance across a range of global ESG ratings and indices to benchmark our approach against best practice and emerging sustainability challenges. We have recently aligned our ESG disclosure to the World Economic Forum and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board frameworks.
