Our ESG reporting approach

The non-financial reporting space is evolving quickly. We are committed to continual evaluation and improvement of our approach and to actively tracking emerging ESG frameworks and good practice.

Reporting transparently on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that affect our business and that our business creates, plays a vital role in delivering our strategy. It helps us to manage ESG risks, seize opportunities and promote sustainable development everywhere we live, work, source and sell.

Our ESG reporting suite aims to provide comprehensive and comparable disclosures for a broad range of stakeholders. As well as publishing our integrated Annual Report and ESG Reporting Index at the year end, we also submit non-financial information to benchmarking and index organisations throughout the year, including those listed in our ESG Reporting Index.

climate-related risks

Action to combat climate change

Climate change is disruptive and accelerating. It is a risk we can, if we act swiftly and collectively, try to mitigate. There are also opportunities for companies that recognise the challenge and develop credible plans to adapt to changing circumstances.
