We recognise that, in most countries where we have business activities, our projects are often long term. We aim to make sustainable investments that will benefit our host communities and help us to be welcome.

We contribute locally through the taxes and contributions that we make to governments, the staff that we hire and develop, the services and goods that we buy from local firms, and the social investments made directly in our host societies and communities. 

In this section, you can read more about our local development activities and impacts in 2011.
