OUR SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

Our Sustainability Strategy, launched in March 2021, explains how we will achieve the goals we have set our business, grouped under five clear sustainability objectives.

Our activities continue to be informed by the materiality review, which we undertook with our stakeholders in 2020. These also closely align to 11 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a collection of interlinked aims designed as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

We are already making progress towards our goals. This page explains what we have achieved already and where we plan to focus activity over the next 12 months..
