Assurance, data & commentary

Here we share independent assessments and commentary on the progress we are making with our Sustainable Living Plan and reporting. We present our annual overviews against three indices: UN Global Compact, GRI and MDG. Interactive charts show our social and environmental performance data.

Our strategy and reporting are strengthened by the feedback we get from our stakeholders and we value independent opinion and input on our approach.
