Human capital includes health, safety knowledge, skills, intellectual outputs, motivation and the capacity for relationships of individuals.
Organisations depend on individuals to function. They need a healthy, motivated and skilled workforce. Intellectual capital and knowledge management is also recognised as a key intangible creator of wealth. Damaging human capital by abuse of human rights or labour rights or compromising health and safety has direct, as well as reputational costs.
Manufactured capital in the trading context relates to the trading process and how it is conducted and the products which are being sourced and delivered to local and international customers.
Manufactured capital is important to an organisationís sustainability because its efficient application allows an organisation to be flexible and innovative and increases the speed at which it delivers.
We enhance our manufactured capital by:
Employing our infrastructure, technologies and processes to use our resources most efficiently; and
Devising technology and management systems that reduce our waste emissions.
