We have a responsibility to ensure that our people, our suppliers, the communities around our operations, our customers and consumers and society at large all thrive as a result of our business.
We create value for millions of people as a buyer of goods and services, as an employer, as corporate citizens and as producers of some of the world’s best-loved brands.
But creating shared value in a lasting way extends beyond this. We want to empower our own people and the communities in which we work by increasing access to opportunities, addressing development challenges such as capability gaps, enable those who live and work in our communities, particularly women, to have the skills and resources to build a better future for themselves.
