Our Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC) oversees our programme on a day-to-day basis. In the past year, it has played a key role in revising our corporate responsibility strategy and embedding it in the business.
Committee members represent a number of business functions – human resources, corporate affairs, environment, quality and safety, procurement and customer management. This reflects our belief that corporate responsibility should be an integral part of the business. Members are responsible for facilitating delivery of corporate responsibility goals in their respective business functions.
Our strategy is led by the corporate affairs team and we have a dedicated corporate responsibility advisor. We report regularly to our Board-level representative, John Gibney.
The Committee recommends annual targets in line with our strategic corporate responsibility goals. Members meet four times a year to review progress and identify priority areas. We have set out our progress against last year’s objectives.
The Committee routinely welcomes fresh ideas from external advisers and experts on a range of issues. It also brings in colleagues from around the business to address specific corporate responsibility items – such as packaging and the supply chain.
