GEAR’s Sustainability Framework establishes four strategic thrusts, also known as impact areas, through which the Company intends to create and deliver positive impacts across the economy, environment and society. GEAR’s strategic intent is defined through our Vision Statement.
Our Sustainability Framework has been developed with the aim to provide an overall strategic sustainability direction. We are driven by our core purpose ‘To be a globally diversified energy and resources company, leading in innovation and sustainability’. The four impact areas address key issues across Economy, Environment, Social and Governance and help us in achieving positive impacts. We have five material matters, supported by 13 sub-matters, that will help us achieve our intended impacts. We have mapped our material matters and associated targets with UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). While our core purpose and impact areas are strategic and long-term, our material matters are dynamic and will change based on internal and external factors.
