In accordance with the 10 core principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), upon which the Group bases its approach to responsible corporate behaviour, we are focused on three main areas: our people, the environment, and the wider community. In 2009, the Group published its first Communication on Progress (CoP) on the UNGC website. We have continued to provide updated progress year-on-year, which is accepted, then published in accordance with our UNGC participation status.
