Strategy and Governance

We’re committed to having a positive impact on the world, while remaining a successful business.

And we’re trusted by investors and other stakeholders to operate responsibly and transparently, living our promise to Go Further, The Right Way.

With operations in more than 100 countries, we have clear policies and strategies for creating value, continually improving our performance and addressing a wide range of social, economic and environmental challenges in a changing world. And we keep them under continual review to reflect global best practice.

With ethics and compliance as the foundation of all our business activities, our integrated governance systems and processes help us manage the different aspects of sustainability across our business, from climate change to product quality and safety, and from ethical business practices to managing our supply chain.
