Committed to our mission
A hallmark of a truly sustainable business is delivering on the promises that it makes to its stakeholders. FY20 was a year where Cleanaway delivered on both short and medium-term commitments that it made publicly and made further progress in our Footprint 2025 journey.
Our FY20 Sustainability Report elaborates on all our material topics. It also introduces our Value Creation Story, which takes our strategic pillars and shows how the inputs we draw on are transformed through our business activities, applying Our Cleanaway Way to create outcomes for our stakeholders. Take the time to read it and thank you for your support in our shared journey towards ‘Making a sustainable future possible’.
