  • Top Connectivity
  • Excellent Visit Value
  • Competitive Marketplace
  • Development of the Group
  • Sustainable & Safe Performance.

Sustainability a common thread running through the other four themes.

We do business with integrity

Our definition of integrity is doing business honestly and treating each other with respect. This is very important to us. Because integrity also includes a transparent policy, we happily provide our stakeholders with an insight into the code of conduct and other rules that we measure ourselves against.
