We have a responsibility to ensure that our people, our suppliers, the communities around our operations, our customers and consumers and society at large all thrive as a result of our business.
We create value for millions of people as a buyer of goods and services, as an employer, as corporate citizens and as producers of some of the world's best-loved brands.
But creating shared value in a lasting way extends beyond this. We want to empower our own people and the communities in which we work by:
- increasing access to opportunities, addressing development challenges such as capability gaps or access to clean water
- advocating high standards of governance
- supporting farmers and other suppliers as they help us build a sustainable value chain.
