We’ve developed our responsible business policy, and prioritised key issues within it, by aligning our strategy with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and sub-targets, and by addressing how we can ensure these are met a local level. The Goals are a series of areas for action across all countries by 2030 and are described by the UN as the ‘blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all’.
