We currently engage with our supply chain through

Global Reporting Initiative

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is used as a reference by thousands across the globe. The GRI allows comparison between companies, benchmarking and informed target setting. In addition to these guidelines, the GRI allows ‘sector supplements' which address the unique, detailed issues of particular sectors. We first used the GRI indicator to report on our company’s performance in 2005. In 2008, we sponsored the GRI in the formation of the Global Working Group to develop this ‘sector supplement’. For more information on the construction and real estate sector supplement and its development, visit the GRI website.
