Corporate Social Responsibility
As a leading food manufacturer and major employer in the core markets in which we operate, we believe we have a duty to maintain good corporate and social responsibility practices for the benefit of not only our colleagues, our customers and our suppliers but also the environment and society in general.
We believe it starts with Greencore’s values which are well embedded within the organisation - we encourage all colleagues to work in accordance with them and indeed each employee’s individual performance is measured against them.
Environmental, ethical and social issues have become evermore prevalent and complex in recent years, which is why we continue to work closely with our colleagues, customers, suppliers, with government bodies, industry experts and trade organisations to ensure that Greencore develops relevant and proactive sustainability activities and programmes which work alongside our values.
We have recently introduced ‘The Greencore Way’, which is a framework we use to drive, measure and communicate the four overriding areas of focus in sustainability and corporate and social responsibility activities.
The following review demonstrates Greencore’s commitment to its corporate social responsibility agenda and provides clear examples of ‘The Greencore Way’ in action. Although most of these examples relate to our more mature UK businesses, we expect to grow and replicate these activities in our fast growing US business over time.
In summary, we believe that a values-driven business that maintains good corporate and social responsibility is key to a long-lasting, sustainable and successful business. To that end, the Greencore Way fully encompasses the way we do things within Greencore and is fully aligned with our operational and commercial strategy.
