Positive Impact is at the heart of what we do
We're committed to being a sustainable, ethical and caring organisation. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is key to how we do business, how we act and how we make things happen in society as we take pride in the valuable contribution we make to our local communities.
We have a clear focus – to promote access to more responsible and sustainable consumption, to support our customers and partners.
Our world is facing unprecedented challenges – climate change, the depletion of natural resources, and rising inequalities, at a time people are experiencing big changes to how they live and work. Through more responsible consumption, people have the power to preserve natural resources, reduce their carbon footprint and make a difference on a greater scale.
COMMITTING TO POSITIVE CHANGE
Environmental sustainability is a core part of our business strategy, which is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our environmental policy supports our commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our business operations and supply chain.
