Value creation

At Hyprop, we see value as more than financial returns. We strive to create value for stakeholders, be a good corporate citizen and operate our business sustainably. This is achieved by pursuing sustainable total returns, remaining relevant in the societies in which we operate, and being cognisant of our impact on the environment and its impact on our business.

Value creation is linked to our approach to good governance and ethical leadership. Management understands that the purpose of business is to increase profitability, provide sustainable total returns and create value. To achieve this, management considers current opportunities and strengths, and explores ways in which to mitigate risks and threats.
