Climate change is one of the most significant challenges of our time and we have made responding to the issue a key priority within our sustainability strategy and our business.
Committing to climate action

Through research, we are gaining a better understanding of the impacts of global warming and know we need to do more. Our Climate Action Plan maps out how we will do that, including setting clear, science-based targets and adopting global reporting standards.

Carbon offsetting


We became carbon neutral in 2021, after offsetting an estimated 7,600 tonnes of carbon emitted during the year. Climate Active certification was achieved through a range of offsetting partnerships, including savannah burning projects managed by First Nations rangers in Arnhem Land.

Managing climate risk


We believe it is important that we clearly demonstrate the steps we are taking to manage and mitigate climate risk. In April 2022, we released our first climate-related risk disclosure in line with the global Taskforce on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
