In the 2016 financial year, Orica delivered a solid financial performance by managing all the elements within our control demonstrating both earnings and cashflow resilience.

The 2016 independent assessment of Orica’s material sustainability issues identified our long-term financial performance and planning as areas  which are material to a sustainable business. A commercially sustainable business supported by good cultures and behaviours is better positioned to make long term and broadly valuable contributions to its community. 

In challenging and cyclical markets, Orica has demonstrated a robust business model. It is important that we continue to focus on doing the basics right and doing what we do best. At the same time, we must anticipate and demonstrate agility in analysing the risks and opportunities presented by longer-term change to ensure our business is prepared.
