ACCESS TO CAPITAL

Financial strength

The Group’s strong balance sheet, credit lines from a network of around 150 banks and access to international capital markets are key differentiators in our industry.
Our funding model combines short-term transactional facilities and committed long-term financing to support our business in different cycles and for distinct requirements. Access to finance is underpinned by a robust approach to managing risk, whether operational, financial, political, social or environmental.
