Partnerships

We work in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders worldwide to drive progress on our shared imperatives

We believe that by building strong partnerships we can create better solutions and make a greater difference in our markets than if we worked alone.

By promoting mutual recognition, a workstream now led by SABMiller, the forum also reduces the burden of repeated ethical audit compliance on our suppliers by recognising supplier audits conducted by another AIM-PROGRESS company.
