At WCT, our sustainability efforts are guided by solid governance with the Group Sustainability Committee overseeing the implementation of the Group’s sustainability strategy. Our sustainability disclosures are supported by year-on-year data tracking with an understanding of our value chains and business processes and the impact of our material matters on our stakeholders. Our strategic sustainability approach helps us better understand how sustainability could better drive growth, productivity and manage risks, while consistently measuring our progress against the impacts we may create. We are focused on driving collective economic growth, focused environmental management and meaningful engagement with communities.
We have identified the goals that are most relevant to the Group and areas where we can commit, invest and measure progress.

Target 12.5: Substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse
We are increasingly practicing waste recycling, reduction and reuse throughout our operations.
Target 8.8: Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers
We manage health and safety risks, ensuring employees understand and adhere to appropriate health and safety measures.
