Celebrating life, today and tomorrow
Submitted by Diageo
In its 11th Sustainability & Responsibility Report, this year Diageo outlines a set of refreshed priorities which it developed following interviews with stakeholders from around the world. The global review was taken in part to reflect significant changes to the business, particularly investment in emerging markets, and comes as the company welcomes its new chief executive Ivan Menezes.
Commenting on the report Ivan said: “I am proud to lead a company with such strong values. Our priorities, and accordingly this year’s report, reflect feedback from our stakeholders. Earning the trust of our stakeholders is not only important to me personally, but it is essential as we continue to expand in high growth markets around the world – many of which have evolving, and more demanding, expectations of the private sector.”
Findings from the external stakeholder engagement process can be found in the report together with details of progress across the company’s key sustainability impacts including alcohol in society, water and the environment, socio-economic development, people and governance and ethics. The report covers activity within the company’s operations as well as across its value chain.
Highlights from Diageo’s work in sustainability & responsibility in the past year include:
