Sustainability

Force for Good

At Whitbread, we believe that a company needs to do more than just make profits and we are committed to being a force for good in all of the communities in which we operate.

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. We will review these commitments every year to make sure we stay on track and focused on what matters.
