“2022 can be characterised by significant macro-economic volatility and inflationary pressure, stability in operational performance and a focus on aspects that we control”
Improved operational and financial performance, despite challenges, contributed to a 42% increase in net cash inflow from operating activities and a solid balance sheet at end 2022 (liquidity of approximately $2.5bn in liquidity). This Financial review provides a summary of our statements of income, financial position and cash flows.
For the 2022 financial year, total economic value generated rose by 9% to $4.76bn, of which $3.73bn or 78% was distributed among providers of capital, employees, governments, communities and suppliers. The balance of $1.03bn (22%) was retained.
Stakeholder value can be created and measured in many forms and not only in financial terms. The stakeholder value we aim to create is allied to our commitment to making a meaningful contribution to the SDGs and an enduring, sustainable world.
