WE USE OUR BUSINESS MODEL TO UNLOCK VALUE BY USING OUR FINANCIAL, HUMAN, SOCIAL AND RELATIONSHIP, MANUFACTURED, INTELLECTUAL AND NATURAL CAPITAL TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE, PROFITABLE BUSINESS AND CREATE VALUE FOR OUR STAKEHOLDERS, BEYOND ONLY FINANCIAL RETURN.

Each of the six capitals consists of resources and relationships, which are constantly being increased, decreased and transformed through our activities. They include the inputs, activities, outputs and outcomes of our business model.
