Sustainable Development Policy

Our Policy:
  • Industry leadership:  We will work with others to promote sustainable development in the industries in which we operate.
  • In our operations: We will meet or exceed all legal requirements and:
    • Enhance the health and safety of all our stakeholders as far as is reasonably practicable in all our operations;
    • Be a good steward of the natural resources and biodiversity under our influence and ensure that all potential adverse impacts of our operations on the environment are identified and appropriately managed;
    • Be an employer of choice by providing an environment in which all employees are treated fairly and with respect and can realise their full potential;
    • Work with suppliers and contractors to promote sustainable development;
    • Encourage the responsible use of our products and services by our customers and consumers;
    • Add value to the communities that we impact and enhance their capabilities while respecting people's culture and heritage.
We adopt this policy because:
  • Sustainable development encompasses our dedication towards the environment, health & safety, employment, business partnerships and community matters;
  • Long-term value creation for our shareholders depends on the sustainable development of our businesses and the communities in which we operate;
  • We wish to excel as corporate citizens.
Making it happen:
  • All of Swire Pacific Offshore’s worksites shall apply this policy. We will encourage other companies in which we have an interest, either as a shareholder or through our supply chain to implement similar policies;
  • We will encourage and empower our staff to be proactive on sustainable development matters both at work and in the community;
  • We will set targets for continuous improvement, monitor our performance and report regularly;
  • We will review this policy periodically, having regards in particular to our regular stakeholder dialogues.
