The WorleyParsons 2016 Corporate Responsibility Performance Report is now available. The report provides an overview of corporate responsibility-related performance for the period 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016 and serves to demonstrate our commitment to supporting the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).
In addition to the significant increase in volunteering hours this year, highlights include our work on improving diversity and inclusion, the WorleyParsons Foundation and environmental performance.
Diversity and Inclusion
We completed the launch of a diversity and inclusion program which has delivered results to close gender pay gaps and promote employee inclusion and engagement. Additional information on our performance can be found on page 29.
The WorleyParsons Foundation supported a number of community projects and community partners during the year. The objectives of the Foundation and details of the Foundation projects can be found on page 35.
Our environmental performance has improved as recognized by awards, reflecting improved disclosure and energy consumption. Additional information can be found on page 50.
Feedback from our stakeholders was sought during the year through a corporate responsibility materiality assessment and a global employee engagement survey. The results of these assessments identified areas of focus important to our employees, customers and shareholders. As a result, we have identified the following key themes aligning our corporate responsibility activities across our operations: community education; diversity and inclusion; skilled volunteering; knowledge building of our people; and good business practices and ethics.
Across our industries and operations, there are opportunities to lead suppliers to better ethical, social and environmental performance. There are increasing expectations to be transparent on selection processes and encourage diversity and ethical conduct. We see our role to promote and align these expectations throughout the value chain. Additional information can be found on page 45.
Our efforts to continuously improve our corporate responsibility performance have been recognized through industry awards for our performance in community social impact, philanthropy, volunteering, non-financial disclosure and corporate responsibility reporting covered in our 2016 Annual Report.
