Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

Climate change will influence the way we identify, measure and manage climate-related risks. As a result, we need to ensure that our assets can adapt to potential future climate scenarios.

With 20 roads operating across three countries and in both hemispheres, it is undeniable that the impact of climate change will affect the way we run our business in the future. These impacts may occur as a result of substantial physical changes to our climate. Because of this, changes to technology, market and reputation will be required as our world transitions to a low-carbon economy.

2021 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. This is our second Modern Slavery Statement and it 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 FY21, we will remain vigilant in monitoring and addressing these risks and continue to deepen the engagement with our supply chain partners.
