These goals relate to the following SDGs:
We are strengthening the sustainability of our supply chain, ensuring that every supplier we work with upholds ethical working practices. We review our Modern Slavery Statement annually. You can read it here. The statement details the steps we take to assess and prevent, to the extent possible, slavery and human trafficking occurring in any part of our business or supply chains.
Our commitment to ethical trading is demonstrated not only through our Anti-Slavery Policy but also by our membership of Sedex, one of the world’s leading ethical trade membership organisations. Through Sedex, we engage with our suppliers to review and audit their environmental and ethical performance, ensuring that responsible practices are being upheld throughout our supply chain.
When it comes to protecting the future of our business and our planet, we cannot afford to waste any time, money or resources. We are on a mission to transform all of our waste into resources for our value chain, make 100% of own brand packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025, and have zero waste to landfill by 2030.
We have already been reducing the amount of plastic we use, and increased our in-house recycling capabilities through THG/recycling. As a member of the UK’s Plastic Pact, we will continue to support innovation and encourage our customers and suppliers to reduce their landfill waste and support a circular economy.
