We are Hastings Deering. We market, rent and support earthmoving and power solutions for customers. In doing so, we represent Caterpillar brand equipment and other aligned manufacturers. We look out for those we work with so that we all return home safely every day. We work co-operatively to provide a stimulating workplace that offers superior solutions and outcomes for our customers and careers for our people. Our business is built on the confidence of our customers in the quality of our work and our relationships with them. Our word is our bond. We will contribute appropriately as individuals and as a company to the environment and the communities which we live and work.
Safety continues to be our leading Critical Success Factor. Because it has been an area of great importance to us for a number of years, it is also the most advanced and robust in terms of sustainability-related data. We have been internationally certified to Occupational Health and Safety Management System. We promote positive health and safety themes through safety training and education, safe act observations, pre-shift safety meetings and Take 5 risk assessments before all tasks. When it comes to the safety of our people, our fundamental belief is that every accident and injury is preventable.
We have based our sustainability stewardship on the four foundation stones of safety, our carbon footprint, water and waste, and social engagement. Long-term success, in our minds, will be achieved when we are able to demonstrate continuous improvement in business practices in each of these areas. Pivotal to the success of our journey towards greater sustainability will be the degree to which we engage with all our stakeholders in which we operate. We will actively seek out valuable input and welcome constructive engagement from other stakeholders. Our challenge is to embed sustainable practices throughout our operations and our value chains.
