Diageo, the world’s leading premium drinks business, releases its 2011 online Sustainability & Responsibility Report which highlights progress and aspirations across the company’s key sustainability impacts and our value chain.
This year we changed the name of our report from ‘Corporate Citizenship’ to ‘Sustainability & Responsibility’. This reflects the evolution of our approach. ‘Sustainability’ reflects how we are increasingly taking into account our wider social, environmental and economic impacts throughout the value chain, and how our non-financial performance supports the long-term success of the company. ‘Responsibility’ reflects our particular role as a beverage alcohol company in promoting responsible drinking.
Commenting on the publication of the report, Paul Walsh, CEO, said: ‘Our sustainability performance demonstrates an inherent strength in our business and an enduring model for value creation, and I am sure that our focus on our social and environmental impacts gives us a competitive edge.’
The Diageo 2011 online Sustainability & Responsibility Report includes a report on our progress toward meeting our targets. The report is organised across the company’s six key impacts: alcohol in society, water, broader environmental sustainability, community development, our people, and governance and ethics.
