Driven by the purpose to be the host of life’s meaningful moments and with brands people trust, we’re committed to effectively contributing to global priorities.

Making every moment matter through sustainable choices

In 2019, we implemented a new sustainability strategy designed to address the key issues facing our planet and improve our contribution to society. Following this, in 2022 we reassessed our ambitions and, conscious of the urgency for change and to address the current climate crisis, have set even more challenging targets in our key focus areas. Further information on progress against are targets can be found in our Annual Report.

Hosts for environmental change

Our revised targets bring us in closer alignment with the 9 UN Sustainable Development Goals which we developed our sustainability strategy around in 2019. The UN SDGs which most aligned with our business were identified through a materiality assessment of our key stakeholders. This prioritisation ensures that we focus on key areas of risk and opportunity and contribute most effectively to global priorities.
