We are committed to protect the environment, respect our neighbours, cause no harm to people, and help the world move towards a lower-carbon future.
We carefully consider the potential environmental impact of our activities and how local communities might be affected during the lifetime of a project.
We take steps to reduce airborne pollutants from our operations and help customers reduce their impact on air quality by using our products.
We manage our use of water carefully and invest in new approaches and technologies to use it more efficiently.
Our projects can affect local natural habitats and communities that depend on them. Read about our work on biodiversity around the world.
