Our strategy

Our strategic priorities support the achievement of our ambition to be one of the best performing, most trusted and respected consumer products companies in the world. Through them, we deliver the strategic outcomes against which we measure our performance.

Diageo's Strategic Priorities
1. Sustain quality growth

Creating sustainable and consistent quality growth is at the heart of our ambition to be ‘one of the best performing’. It means delivering consistent net sales and margin growth as well as top-tier shareholder returns.

2. Embed everyday efficiency

Everyday efficiency creates the fuel that allows us to invest smartly and sustain quality growth. At its heart, everyday efficiency is a mindset and a culture, which everyone in Diageo is encouraged to bring to life in their daily work.

3. Invest smartly

We are investing in the future success of our business to support the delivery of consistent performance and enable sustainable, quality growth.

4. Promote positive drinking

We want to change the way the world drinks for the better. That means promoting moderation and continuing to address the harmful use of alcohol by changing attitudes and expanding our programmes that tackle underage drinking, drink driving and binge drinking.

5. Champion inclusion and diversity

We champion inclusion and diversity across our business: from the way we attract, develop, retain and recruit the very best diverse talent, to the way we source services and progressively portray diversity through our brands. We are determined to remove barriers, while having a positive impact on our partners, suppliers and communities.

6. Pioneer grain-to-glass sustainability

We have always understood that for our business to be sustainable, it needs to create enduring value – for us and for those around us. Our ‘Society 2030: Spirit of Progress’ action plan take us further than ever in our drive to preserve water for life, accelerate to a low carbon world, and become sustainable by design.
