Our approach is continually evaluated against the highest international principles. This includes measuring our strategic impact against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and the ten principles of the UN Global Compact.
Upholding the many policies and protocols relating to our Sustainability Strategy rests on a culture of ethical conduct and integrity, which is instilled through our Ethics and Integrity team and our Speak Up confidential reporting programme.
The Corporate Responsibility (CR) Committee is responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of policies and strategy relating to our sustainability endeavours, including the Group’s climate net zero commitment published in October 2021.
The CR Committee receives reports at every meeting from the Group Chief Commercial Officer, the Global Director of Sustainability and other senior managers to ensure that progress is being made towards meeting the Group’s specific KPIs and ongoing CR commitments, including our GHG emissions targets.
The CR Committee meets at least three times a year and comprises all the non-executive directors of the Board, together with the Chair of the Board, Group Chief Executive Officer and Group Chief Financial Officer. Find out more about our sustainability governance in our latest Annual Report.
