Our B Corp values in action

We’re excited to share our first Impact Report, where we outline our approach and progress in each of our four sustainability pillars. While the data in the report mainly covers FY22 (Oct 2021-Sep 2022), we also highlight some notable achievements since the launch of our sustainability strategy in October 2022. As we’re still in the early stages of our journey, this report aims to strike a balance between initial successes and areas where we endeavour to make even more progress moving forward - as transparency is one of our core values.
