Living our values
Our people bring our values to life every day. Our values guide our behaviour and help us to demonstrate the benefits we create for our people, suppliers, neighbours, customers and the environment. They have also been crucial in maintaining our businesses’ resilience to the challenges we have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To demonstrate how we live our values every day, we set out a group-level articulation of those expressed by our individual businesses. They do not replace each business’s own values. Instead, they consolidate and distil the most common themes from across the group.
We strive to protect the dignity of everyone within and beyond our operations, so that the people who make our products feel safe, respected and included.
We proudly promote and protect a culture of trust, fairness and accountability that puts ethics first. From farms and factories right through to our boardroom, we are committed to embedding integrity into every action.
We work with others to leverage our global expertise for local good. Through collaboration with our stakeholders, including non-governmental organisations (NGOs), we are working to create safer, fairer working environments and promoting thriving, resilient communities.
Fromthe products we make to the way we preserve the resources we rely on and support the people we work with, we are always learning and incorporating better practices. Across our businesses, we are partnering with industry experts to help us work towards the highest standards.
“‘Starting the conversation’ is one of the ways we seek to create greater inclusion and understanding of diverse issues. Led and facilitated by employees, our disability learning events and, more recently, an employee Pride video are helping to create dialogue and learning about lived experiences.”
