Corporate Responsibility overview 2018

Better Tomorrow 2025 was launched with an aim to strengthen and align our corporate responsibility ambitions with our corporate strategy. We have worked hard to bring further coherence to our business actions, focusing on improving quality of life through nine global commitments.

As a global company serving 100 million customers every day, our corporate responsibility work is always evolving. In my role as the regional chairman I am proud that the UK and Ireland is leading our evolution - in the last year we published our environmental commitments, gender pay gap report and issued a sustainable packaging pledge helping to reduce single use plastics in our business.

With the help and dedication of our employees, customers and clients, our corporate responsibility achievements support our mission to enhance the quality of life of everyone we serve continuing our efforts on sourcing in a responsible way, tackling hunger and malnutrition, promoting gender equality and avoiding food waste.
