Community

We're an active member of the local communities, bringing economic benefits through our core business activities while also supporting community investment programmes.

Our community investments are focused across four key areas: community wellbeing, youth development and environmental initiatives.

We aim to play a value-adding role in the communities in which we serve and have integrated corporate responsibility and sustainability across our business. We strive to operate responsibly, engaging with stakeholders and communities to support their development.

Through our core business activities – which generate income for employees, supplier payments and government taxes – our focus remains to invest in community partnerships and projects that address environmental and social issues.
