Since they set up shop in 1869, they’ve always had a strong sense of social, environmental and economic responsibility and an understanding that their success depends on society’s success.

Today, with one billion people living in extreme poverty; malnutrition and obesity becoming more prevalent and our planet’s resources being pushed to their limits, their values are helping us to drive lasting, positive change in the UK and internationally.

They support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and want to play their part in tackling climate change, injustice and inequality and ending poverty. These 17 Goals also offer great economic opportunity and in a highly competitive industry like theirs, they make strong commercial sense.

Their values help us strengthen relationships with all their stakeholders, build trust, reduce operating costs, mitigate risks and attract and retain talent in a crowded marketplace. They’re focusing efforts where they can make the greatest difference and they believe collective action is the only way to address these global issues at the speed and scale required.
