Our purpose has become our guiding light, defining why we do what we do: Building a better future for all™. One critical way that we will deliver on our purpose is by embracing bold and meaningful Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments. We are advancing our ESG commitments with even larger ambitions across the company while putting roadmaps in place to get us there and hold ourselves accountable. Sustainability is a never-ending journey for us. So, we continue to identify and develop solutions that do right by our planet, our people, and the communities where we operate.
James Hardie is committed to improving our sustainability performance proactively by carefully managing our social and environmental impacts. To help us track and assess our progress, we established sustainability goals that align directly with issues that matter most to our stakeholders and our overall corporate objectives.
In FY23, James Hardie made significant progress on our ESG priorities and raised our level of ambition.
Encouraged by our progress in FY23 and the possibilities of what can be achieved, we have adopted new, more ambitious goals for our carbon footprint, waste and Inclusion and Diversity initiatives. All our ESG goals ensure that James Hardie will continue to positively impact our employees, the customers we serve and the communities in which we operate.
