Our latest half-year update sets out the actions we have taken over the last six months to help make a positive contribution to customers, colleagues, suppliers and communities.
In May 2013 we set out our new corporate responsibility strategy. We committed to using our scale and capabilities as a global multichannel retailer to create greater value for society.
As part of our strategy to use our scale for good, we set out to tackle three long-term challenges which are relevant to us as a global retailer and society at large. We call these our three big ambitions:
As a global food retailer, we have a shared responsibility to reduce food waste across the value chain wherever it occurs - in fields, farms, our own operations and our homes. That's why we made reducing food waste one of our three big ambitions.
by putting our customers first and working with our suppliers to innovate and provide high quality products
by aiming to be a carbon-zero business by 2050 and to use scarce resources responsibly
- creating opportunities that make our colleagues happy and proud of what they do
Building on the insights and advice we have gained from experts, we have enhanced our understanding of the issues we are tackling and have started to take action to make a difference.
