Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainability

Every year, since 2001, we've publicly reported our sustainability performance. These reports set out our policies and principles and summarise how we're managing our environmental impacts, how we're working with suppliers and local communities, and how our employees or Partners contribute to and share in the rewards of our commercial success.

In 2015 we combined our Annual Report and Sustainability Review information into one document, reflecting the way in which we do business. .

Published as a web-based report, this interactive review profiles what's important to us; our Partners, customers, suppliers and the communities in which we trade. A basic PDF download of the full report is also available.
