SABMiller's 10 priorities provide a robust, rigorous and transparent framework for managing sustainable development across our business, with clear management accountability and responsibilities across the business.
Sustainable development is integral to the way we do business and is reflected in our strategic priority to constantly raise the profitability of local operations, sustainably.
Our 10 sustainable development priorities provide a strong framework, offering clarity to our local operations on how to address material sustainable development issues. At the same time, our approach is flexible enough to allow our local operations to invest their resources in the issues most relevant to them in their own markets. In our work on water, for example, differences in climate, infrastructure and other factors can mean that local operations face very different issues and risks.
These priorities are continually tested and reviewed at group level and by our local businesses to make sure they remain relevant and meaningful. We consult regularly with external stakeholders at both global and local levels to ensure we take their views and perceptions into account and evolve our approach accordingly.
