The size and complexity of most sustainability and societal issues mean they cannot be addressed by any one solution or any one organisation. Progressive collaborations between businesses, governments, NGOs and consumers are essential to find innovative solutions and achieve systemic change at the required pace.
Commitments and targets
Our ambition is to accelerate change by leading with others. We’re committed to working collaboratively with suppliers, civil society, the science community, governments, customers and other businesses. Some Plan A commitments and targets can only be achieved through collaboration.
We focus on challenges that are important to our business and those which we can influence.
Our collaborations comprise multiple organisations working together to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes. We invest in collaborations that deliver tangible outcomes, working at all levels – from local communities to international forums.
We are focussing on six areas we believe are most crucial to delivering our systemic change ambitions: demonstrating the business case for sustainability; climate change; deforestation; product sustainability; circular economy; and enhancing the lives of people and communities.
