The production of food relies on a functioning ecosystem. Stable weather, pollinators and essential microorganisms in the soil are vital for our food production. However, the food chain is a major influence on the conditions for a stable climate. A large proportion of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions derive from the food chain. Overuse of chemical pesticides and fertilisers is another risk in our industry. In addition, our industry contributes to plastics pollution in the ocean. Delivering quality means taking just as much care over how the product is created as how it is appreciated when consumed. It is our responsibility to ensure, as far as possible, that satisfying our customers’ demand for high-quality food and household products does not jeopardise the needs of future generations. The fact that many of our products are manufactured in countries far away makes corporate responsibility particularly important.
