We continually review and explore ways to ensure that our business operates in a responsible manner across our key focus areas of: health and safety, environmental management, our people, ethical business practices and how we interact and support our local communities. We remain committed to ensuring these activities become embedded in how we operate and contribute towards the success of our business.
We convene regular meetings of our Corporate Responsibility Committee, chaired by Non-executive Director Ian Nicholson. These meetings are attended by senior leaders from across the Group, with the aim to review current performance, and challenge the business in meeting future targets and objectives in each of our impact areas:
- Health and Safety — ensuring the safety and well-being of our staff
- Environment — managing our environmental impact areas of waste, energy and water
- Employees — supporting our people to develop and flourish within the business
- Ethical Standards — operating to the highest ethical standards
- Community — positive interaction with the communities in which we operate
The Corporate Responsibility Report for the year ended 30 April 2017 can be found on pages 30 to 38 of our Annual Report 2017
