- Supplier engagement on social and environmental issues
We manage all facets of our supply chain to reduce our environmental footprint. Our efforts include reducing food waste, using more sustainable packaging, and fighting climate change. The Group was the only African company to earn a place on the CDP FY 2022 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard for taking action to measure and reduce climate risk within our supply chain.
Our supplier code of conduct covers a range of social and environmental issues and prospective suppliers need to commit to it. They increasingly support initiatives in responsible sourcing and sustainable packaging, and are eager to assist the beneficiaries of many of our CSI programmes. We conduct an annual Supplier Sustainability Survey to help us understand our suppliers’ sustainability profiles to reduce and mitigate risks (where possible).
