Performance Summary

The tables below summarises the measures we track regarding our material sustainability issues.

In 2014, the Group commenced a significant restructure, establishing dedicated, streamlined and efficient businesses focused on contract mining services (Thiess), construction (CPB Contractors and Leighton Asia), public private partnerships (Pacific Partnerships), and engineering (EIC Activities). Given this transformation, a number of comparable operational safety and environmental performance measures are not available prior to the 2015 year on which we are currently reporting. Where comparable data is available, it has been provided. In future reports, the Group expects to be able to provide more detailed operational performance measures by Operating Company.
