Corporate Social Responsibility
Britvic has always taken its responsibilities to the environment and our various stakeholder communities very seriously. Employees across our business work every day to meet high standards of quality and safety, as well as environmental awareness.
Through our Corporate Responsibility programme we have identified the areas where we plan to do more. We have given these workstreams the authority and impetus to deliver improvements wherever they are required.
The Plc Board and Executive Committee agree a formal strategy and deliverables across 5 key areas:-
- Supply Chain
The strategy is sponsored by our Finance Director, and our Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC) oversee delivery.
Our Corporate Responsibility programme is subject to a long-term vision and plan and our targets are milestones that will help us to assess progress and to refine our policies and practices.
