Sustainability approach

We’ve worked consistently to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainability across every aspect of our business.

Corporate responsibility and sustainability are fundamental to the way we do business: they guide all of our decisions and long-term investments. We are firmly committed to growing stronger together with the communities where we operate, to reducing our environmental footprint and to contributing to the local economy.

Our business strategy is built on the principle of creating and sharing value with all of our stakeholders: consumers, customers, communities, employees and shareholders. This defines how we run our business, carry out our activities and develop our relationships.

We work with our stakeholders to identify the material issues to our business. Our sustainability commitments come from linking our material issues to our strategic priorities.

Our focus areas

As environmental and social challenges grow in number and urgency, we must focus our actions. Three strategic priorities guide our efforts to conduct our business sustainably:

  • Environment and Water Stewardship
  • Community and Youth Empowerment
  • Health and Wellness

For each of them, we set targets and constantly track performance. Our sustainability priorities directly support our business imperatives. For example,  our efforts for cost efficiency are supported by environmental programs to reduce our use of energy, water and packaging. Our sustainability goals and initiatives unleash our capacity to innovate.

We minimise our environmental impact in the whole value chain through implementing, where appropriate, specific targets to:

  • Reduce our water, energy usage and produced waste
  • Drastically decrease our Green House Gas (GHG) emissions
  • Improve packaging, increase recovery and recycling, decrease waste to landfill
  • Source sustainably
