Goals hierarchy

To achieve our strategy and corporate purpose, all goals are cascaded throughout the organisation, and assured through our integrated reporting framework.

All of our development goals are consistent with our corporate purpose and goals, updated on an annual basis. Goals for the CEO and management team (SMT) include both specific individual priorities and deliverables relevant to the function. Goals are further cascaded throughout the organisation with an appropriate mix of corporate and individual goals.

In parallel, our reporting framework ensures compliance with regulatory requirements, stakeholder expectations and voluntary commitments.

As a foundation for all our activities, our Code of Conduct states how all employees shall act to comply with our values, standards and commitments.
