Our people are at the heart of our organisation. We have a fundamental concern for our people – we believe all injuries are preventable and that zero harm is the only acceptable goal. We support our people to make good decisions 100 per cent of the time.

We are committed to the sustainable development of our businesses and we take the long-term view – in relationships with our people, our partners and customers, the communities in which we operate, and in finding new ways to reduce the resources we use.

How we do this – the way we do business and how we interact with each other – is guided by our values.

integrity – we are ethical and honest, we deliver on commitments and we create trusting relationships.

excellence – we are dedicated to innovation and excellence in everything we do.

humility – we respect others and learn from them, we are aware of our own limitations and we listen to others with an open mind.

endeavour – we relish challenge, we are resilient, and we know lasting success is hard won and nurtured with solid, responsible, hard work.

continuity – we take the long-term view, and have the privilege and responsibility of growing our businesses along sustainable lines.
