In society

Our ambition is to be one of the best performing, most trusted and respected consumer products companies in the world. Promoting positive drinking is at the heart of this.

Sustainability Development Strategy

Operating in a responsible and sustainable way every day, everywhere means that we can support our communities, protect and preserve natural resources and ensure alcohol plays a positive role in society.

Our Priorities

Our priorities are guided by the issues that are most material to our business and the value chain we create. From the farmers who grow our ingredients, to our employees and contractors, to the consumers who buy our brands, we want to make sure we are a positive influence on society and the environment.

Our Strategy

Our strategy continues to evolve as we build towards the business we want to be in 2030 and beyond.

In 2015, we set a range of environmental and social targets for 2020. We reached the end of our  targets which were selected to ensure we help to achieve the UN’s Global Goals and support WHO programmes on health, such as the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases. Find out more about our 2020 achievements here.

We have since launched Society 2030:Spirit of Progress – Diageo’s 10 year action plan to help create a more inclusive and sustainable world. From how we promote a positive role for alcohol, champion inclusion and diversity, preserve natural resources to making a positive contribution to the communities we serve.
