One year ago, we published the Greggs Pledge: ten things that we're doing to help make the world a better place by 2025. In this report, we share progress towards those ten commitments and explain what we will be doing next. It is our way of being as transparent as possible on this important journey.
I'm proud of what we have achieved together in 2021, particularly given the ongoing challenges we've faced in managing the Covid-19 pandemic. We've come back stronger and better: we opened new Breakfast Clubs and Outlet shops; we smashed our target on providing healthier choices; we are opening our first Eco-Shop; and we have made reductions to both food waste and our use of packaging.
Thank you to the thousands of colleagues who are working hard to deliver our commitments, as well as the partners and suppliers who support us. As our business grows and evolves, we will keep working together to make the world a better place.
