Our focus areas
How we report performance and progress
In 2019, we have approached our reporting at a group level across all Associated British Foods businesses, rather than structuring it by individual business segments. We have divided our reporting into three sections:
Under each of these focus areas, we report performance and progress against the issues that are material for our businesses and our stakeholders. These topics are related and interdependent.
We are working hard to reduce our carbon footprint, use energy, water and natural resources efficiently, secure ingredients for our businesses responsibly and promote biodiversity.
Respecting the environment includes:
addressing the challenge of climate change;
using natural resources responsibly;
stewarding biodiversity; and
improving animal health and welfare.
