Our Corporate Responsibility agenda

Our Corporate Responsibility (CR) agenda focuses on four themes: Packaging we make, Our supply chain, Our manufacturing operations and People. This agenda was newly formulated in 2015.

For each theme we have defined an ambition as well as related material aspects, with which we will work more concretely during the coming years. The agenda has been assessed by our key stakeholders and approved by the Group Executive Team. We continuously evaluate our CR performance and externally report on our achievements against the ambitions and KPIs annually.
