Our approach

Clothing, Apparel, Footwear

We are committed to promoting economic and social development in the markets we serve, doing so sustainably and equitably in line with our purpose and three valued behaviours: ‘Never settle’, ‘Better together’ and ‘Do the right thing’.

This sustainability philosophy sets out how we integrate sustainability into our organisational decision-making. Our Sustainability approach is underpinned by our Sustainability Aspirations, which provide tangible targets for sustainable business outcomes aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We are focusing on three sustainability pillars – Sustainable Finance, Responsible Company and Inclusive Communities.

Growth in our markets is leading to rapid urbanisation and creating increased need for infrastructure and technology. We believe finance plays a key role in meeting these needs. It enables individuals to build a positive future for themselves and their families, businesses to thrive and grow, and governments to deliver economic prosperity for the wider community.

Supporting sustainable and responsible growth, including delivering against the UN SDGs, represents a significant opportunity for us. In pursuing this opportunity, we are guided by our brand promise, Here for good.
