BEING A FORCE FOR GOOD
We’ve always been about people, and we always will, so it makes sense that our sustainability programme is all about people too. It’s called Force for Good. And it’s about helping everyone – our customers, team members and suppliers – to live and work well.
Force for Good is grouped into three key pillars – Opportunity, Community and Responsibility. Within each area, we’ve set long term strategic commitments that we believe will help us reach our goal of enabling people to live and work well.
A team where everyone can reach their potential. No barriers to entry and no limitations to ambition.
Making a meaningful contribution to the customers and communities we serve.
Always operating in a way that respects people and the planet.
