OUR GOALS AND COMMITMENTS

We believe that setting ambitious sustainability goals challenges our own business to do more, and inspires others to collaborate on and contribute to this vital endeavour.

Vision 2025+, our new Good Business Journey (GBJ) strategy, is intended to enable the Group to be a leading, purpose-driven, truly connected retailer, by aiming to address the complex and interconnected sustainability challenges and opportunities we face now and into the future. It is also intended to ensure that our GBJ continues to keep us at the forefront of sustainability leadership, pushing us to innovate and collaborate with others.

When setting the goals and targets for this strategy, we aimed to achieve the following:

  • Bold and ambitious targets
  • Short-, medium-, and long-term targets set against baselines
  • Science- or context-based targets where possible
  • Alignment with global collective sustainability initiatives and commitments

 

VISION 2025+ PILLARS AND UNDERLYING GOALS

THRIVING & RESILIENT
We care for the environment and are committed to working towards net zero impact and a just transition to a low carbon future.





ETHICAL & FAIR
We care for how our products are made and are committed to a fully transparent, traceable, and ethical supply chain.




INCLUSIVE JUSTICE
We care for our people and are committed to being a diverse and inclusive business, enhancing the wellbeing of our employees, customers and communities.

 

For some of these goals, there is currently uncertainty with regards to the pathway to achieve them. We will need to conduct groundwork to identify relevant certifications, programmes, technologies, and emerging innovation; put in place new or improved measurement and reporting processes and systems; set aside additional budget to support the business in implementation; and identify peers, NGOs, and other organisations with whom we can collaborate.
