We recognise the social and environmental impacts of our operations, and aim to manage these responsibly in the way our customers, colleagues, and other stakeholders would expect.
We have aligned our sustainability strategy with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals to help us make a meaningful impact in line with the global 2030 agenda, and to monitor our progress against those aims.
We have four strategic focus areas: planet, product, circularity, and communities. Together, these will allow our customers and colleagues to make more sustainable choices, help us move towards carbon-neutral, and enable us to have a positive impact in the communities in which we operate.
Sustainability is a key priority for The Very Group and I’m proud of the progress we’re making. We’ll keep investing in sustainability to deliver even greater change in the months and years ahead.
