Sustainability is a key focus of our local business strategy here in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) and we are proud of our long history of positive impact.
We invite you to read our 2019 Sustainability update, which reports back against our 2016 strategic targets. We are pleased to share that we met or surpassed all of these targets including carbon reduction (as of end 2019 achieved 62% against a 40% target) and our ambition to positively impact 1.2 million lives (as of end 2019 just under 1.3 million). We’ve also continued to divert nearly all our manufacturing waste, whilst working with groups such as APCO to reduce our plastics footprint.
In 2020 we developed a new, ambitious strategy which will see us stretch ourselves to do even more for people, and the planet.
The next 10 years are crucial, and whilst reaching some of our goals won’t be easy, we are determined to significantly reduce our environmental footprint and do more for our communities in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
We encourage you to read about our focus areas and targets, and we look forward to sharing our 2020 progress with you later this year.
