CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility is a fundamental component of our business strategy.

Our supply chains and operations are truly global. Corporate Social Responsibility is therefore a fundamental component of our strategy. We want to grow, but must do so sustainably, minimising our impact on the environment and having a positive impact on our communities and supply chains.

Our efforts are focused on three pillars:

  • Climate Change & The Environment
  • Fair Partner & Good Employer
  • Health & Wellbeing

Cross functional work streams ensure we continue to improve across each of these pillars, through the monitoring of progress and the setting of targets. For example, we are committed to only using cage-free eggs across our business by 2025. We also operate separate Seafood Sustainability, Ethical Trading, Packaging and Energy working groups.

We also seek to engage every colleague positively in the actions we take to advance our CSR position and call on all colleagues to make a difference whatever their role.

We seek outside counsel in our corporate responsibility efforts, learning from and collaborating with social and environmental leaders and organisations to ensure we have the most up-to-date information and understand issues as deeply as possible.

SDGs

In 2015 the United Nations approved 17 objectives, broken down into 169 targets, to be reached by 2030 – the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

Attaining these goals is not the responsibility of one organisation but a shared global challenge for government, private sector, civil society and consumers.

There are specific goals that are particularly pertinent to our business activities and sphere of influence, where we can make a real contribution. However every goal is of relevance to Princes and we continually assess how we can contribute.
