Social responsibility

We want our business to have a positive impact on people's lives - our teams, customers, suppliers and local communities.

We believe it is our social responsibility to do business in a way that brings benefits to people who shop with us, work for us, supply to us, or live near us.  In addition, we recognise our broader responsibility to respect the environment.  Our social responsibility programme has five areas of focus, with a clear commitment against each one.  These commitments are delivered through a series of projects with measurable targets. 

The Chief Executive is responsible for delivering the overall programme and an Operating Board Director has been assigned to be champion for each of the areas - as illustrated below.  This group meets quarterly to review progress at a steering group convened by the Company Secretary.  To find out more click here
