Pillar two: Sustainable sourcing

Sustainable sourcing

One of the key challenges facing mankind is that, as economies develop across the globe, the supply of raw materials is increasingly challenging

The extraction, production and harvesting of raw materials can have environmental and social impacts which may have long-term and far-reaching consequences.

As this is clearly unsustainable, we have identified a number of key areas we believe we have a responsibility to address - and can do something positive about. Managing our products, raw materials and ingredients in this way not only makes good environmental sense, but good business sense too. Sustainable sourcing is increasingly important to our clients and consumers who want to know where and how our products are sourced.

Sustainable sourcing objectives

Our sustainable sourcing strategy includes the following objectives:

  • Provide full traceability of products and suppliers within our approved supply chain to ensure that sustainable, ethical and safety standards are built in to our requirements
  • Support Indian sourcing, working with farmers and growers to use local and regional produce made, grown or reared to support local or regional requirements
  • Work in partnership with our clients, suppliers and distributors to reduce the impact of our business on the environment
