Our focus areas
How we report performance and progress
Since 2019, we have looked at our responsibilities across all Associated British Foods businesses, grouping them into three sections:
We use these focus areas to structure how we report our performance and progress against the issues that are material for our businesses and our stakeholders. Although distinct for the purposes of communication, 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:
- mitigating and adapting to climate change;
- supporting the circular economy by using natural resources responsibly;
- promoting biodiversity and healthy ecosystems; and
- improving animal health and welfare.
