We recognise that to provide long term value for investors and meet the needs of each of our stakeholder groups, we must deliver more than just financial returns. We set high standards for our performance across environmental, social and governance issues and transparent disclosure of our sustainability performance.

Actions we're taking

United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals alignment

Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

Climate change is already influencing the way we identify, measure and manage climate-related risks. We need to prepare our assets to better adapt to potential future climate scenarios.

With 22 roads operating across Australia and North America, it is undeniable that the impact of climate change will affect the way we run our business in the future – including because of substantial physical changes to our climate. Changes across technology, market and reputation will be required as our world transitions to a low-carbon economy.

Our latest Climate Change Disclosure is available in our FY23 Corporate Report (p39)

Modern Slavery Statement

Modern slavery is a serious and complex issue that requires a long-term and coordinated response. As such, we have joined like-minded industry partners to adopt a united approach to addressing this issue. Our latest Modern Slavery Statement outlines how we work to identify, manage and mitigate the specific risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chains.

While we did not identify any instances of modern slavery in our operations or supply chains in this financial year, we will remain vigilant in monitoring and addressing these risks and continue to deepen the engagement with our supply chain partners.
