Integrated Report 2021

Our business model

Our business model and strategy are designed to ensure we can deliver on our purpose, which guides the decisions we make, how we behave as a business, enables growth, and also creates value for our stakeholders and progress in society.

Our interaction with the resources and relationships on which our business model depends determines how successful we are at creating, or preserving value over time. These include factors within our control and beyond our control. They also present us with risks and opportunities that have both a negative and positive effect on our ability to deliver value during the year under review.

Input availability

The availability, quality and affordability of the capital inputs into our business model on which we depended on 1 October 2020 were the result of the outcomes we had achieved by 30 September 2020, as well as the financial capital available to us in the form of debt facilities and cash flow generated by our operations during 2021.

Factors we can control:

  • Asset management
  • Relationships with our stakeholders
  • Operational efficiencies
  • Effective resource allocation
  • Effective governance and compliance

Factors we cannot control:

  • Covid-related restrictions and impacts
  • Exchange rate volatility
  • Impact of the market on sales
  • Supply chain challenges
  • Macroeconomic environment
