We are committed to delivering economic value to our capital providers. For our shareholders, we deliver value in the form of dividends and share price appreciation; to our lenders this comes in the form of payment of interest and repayment of principal in accordance with our obligations. To achieve sustainability, our business must generate economic value over the long-term and on a large-scale. Our commitments to our shareholders, as well as on responsible management and on Communications and Reporting, as included in our
Value Framework, articulate our desire to maintain long-term stability and growth in shareholder value and return on investment, and to enhance the competitive position of our business, so that it can remain a sustainable one.
