ARM's approach to sustainable development arises out of our business strategy and the
"We do it better" management style that guides our day to day actions. Our business strategy relies heavily on ensuring operational efficiencies, with the goal that all operations are to perform below the 50th percentile of the global cost curve.

We recognise that globally competitive operational performance is heavily dependent on ensuring that all aspects of sustainability are addressed. While financial returns are a primary concern, shareholders and investors are increasingly taking a holistic view to assessing performance that includes social, environmental and governance concerns.
