Our corporate responsibility and sustainability priorities
Sustainability is key to our business strategy and something we consider in everything we do. Forward thinking is one of our businesses’ five key ingredients and through our sustainability plan we’ve set ourselves clear and challenging targets, which we revisit each year to ensure we track progress and maintain focus. We feel it is important to deliver our services in the right way, to help our customers grow and to minimise our impact on the environment as much as possible.
This year we’re launching a new three-year strategy which radically changes the way we manage our sustainability agenda. We’re aligning our strategy to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, so look out for the icons as you read about the different strands of our approach.

Supporting industry initiatives
We’ve signed up to the WRAP Courtauld Commitment 2025, which aims to reduce the resources needed to provide food and drink in the UK by 20% in 10 years. Clear targets, consistent measurement and collective reporting will help us succeed.
We also use the UN Sustainability Development Goals to help guide our activities and we have a specific focus on goal 12; Responsible consumption and production.
