Approach to Sustainability

By supporting the safe production of resources that lift standards of living and drive economic growth around the world, we are helping ignite opportunities for our customers, our people and the  communities where we work.

Our sustainability framework

Our approach to sustainability begins with ensuring we operate our business responsibly, and prioritising the safety of our people, customers, and communities. We also recognise that the long-term success of our business depends on our ability to create lasting value for our host countries and local communities, and through the sustainable use of natural resources.

That’s why we look for opportunities to make a positive impact. From building a diverse and inspired workforce and reducing our GHG emissions to directing our innovation and technology focus toward solving the sustainability challenges of tomorrow. We are working on our own sustainability goals and looking for ways to support our customers with theirs.

Our sustainability framework drives deeper sustainability engagement and outcomes across the company. We are focusing on the areas that matter most to Orica and our stakeholders and where we have the expertise to make the biggest impact. Underneath it all, it is the thoughtfulness and curiosity of our people, all around the world, who make the difference. From big to small, local to global, we are shaping a positive and prosperous future.

Our sustainability framework reflects our focus and our ambitions. It covers nine topics under three key themes:

Our performance

We set priorities and targets against our material sustainability topics and measure our progress because we believe transparency and disclosure drive performance. For further details see our Sustainability Report.
