Our approach to global responsibility

Working with others, we aspire to reshape whole systems to achieve significant and lasting improvement in social, environmental and economic outcomes. For example, enhancing environmental sustainability in retail supply chains means addressing their social and economic dimensions, too. We have placed, and will continue to place, increasing emphasis on social issues such as empowering women and promoting worker safety and dignity.


Creating economic opportunity


Enhance sustainability of global supply chains


Strengthening local communities
