The reach and scale of our business means we play a key role in the economic development of the communities in which we operate. Across our value chains, we seek to achieve both commercial advantages and benefits for local communities in the way we operate.
Where it makes sense we source locally, reducing our import and distribution costs and maximising local economic benefit. We also work closely with a number of global suppliers who are required to adhere to our responsible sourcing principles.
