A sustainability governance model has been adopted to lead and oversee the effective execution of our sustainability efforts in order to drive accountability throughout Northwest.
We recognise that effective sustainability governance requires executive and Board level oversight, leadership, strong central support, and integration into lines of business to effectively achieve our goals. In 2021, we established a sustainability committee to guide progress towards our ambition.
The committee regularly engages with the Board of Trustees on priority topics including sustainability risks and opportunities, targets, and alignment to our overall organisational strategy and vision. We have established working groups to convene relevant cross-functional stakeholders to coordinate and drive the implementation of our sustainability initiatives, and facilitate sharing of best practices across our global organisation.
