A WORD FROM THE CHIEF STRATEGY & SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT EXECUTIVE

We have consciously decided to integrate sustainability into our business strategy. It’s not an easy task, and we must see this ambition as a marathon, not a sprint. Our focus on sustainability also aligns with Rogers’ purpose – ‘Meaningful Change’.
