ESG Framework

Our people

As a global company with a footprint across four continents, our inclusive culture that values the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our people, is critical to achieving our strategy.

Our intentionally simple operating model and flexible work practices are designed to empower our employees and contractors and clarify all lines of accountability within a considered risk framework. This approach builds trust and psychological safety, and results in more effective and agile risk-based decision-making closest to where the work is done.
