Across every aspect of the business, EBOS Group is committed to improving the lives of people and animals in Australia and New Zealand. Today we launch our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Program and inaugural Sustainability Report.
This Program is a key initiative for the future of EBOS that will serve as the framework for responsible governance and organisational practices to ensure we continue to meet the expectations of our stakeholders and maintain our social license to operate. Many of the initiatives that fall within the remit of our ESG Program have been established across our businesses for some time; however, the intention of the program is to formalise this activity in a way that is measurable and can be accurately reported on. Importantly, we also seek to highlight areas where we can continue to improve, thereby enabling more structured governance, evaluation and disclosure as part of our comprehensive management approach to responsible corporate leadership.
Through our ESG program, EBOS will embrace the full range of responsibilities that come with our role as a leading provider of essential health and animal care products and services. The program comprises five pillars being Health & Animal Care Partners; Consumers & Patients; Community & Environment; Our People; and Responsible Business. Within these pillars are 20 material ESG topics that are significant for the sustainability of our business and the interests of our stakeholders. The Sustainability Report, presented annually, will report on EBOS’ ESG Program and initiatives over the financial year.
