2025 Sustainability Goals
Our 2025 Sustainability Goals are our most ambitious public commitments yet. Introduced in March 2018, the goals aim for holistic environmental and social impact and drive transformational change across our entire value chain. Our company’s leadership and a cross-functional team of nearly 100+ colleagues designed these goals with the next 100 years in mind, understanding that bold action built on measurable results is the key to resilience and lasting positive impact.
Our Nigerian operation is aligned to our Group’s 2025 Sustainability Goals and we are developing programmes on ground to contribute to these goals:
Sustainability is our business
In 2017, we formally engaged stakeholders through our materiality review process and the results informed our 2025 Sustainability Goals. Since our 2017 assessment, our business and the world have evolved tremendously. Therefore, in early 2020 we conducted a new materiality assessment to reflect the aspects most material to our stakeholders in order to continue to focus on critical economic, social and environmental issues as a business and community partner.
Our 2020 Materiality Assessment
In 2020, the materiality assessment process* mapped key economic, social and environmental issues on a matrix based on the degree of stakeholder interest and potential business impact. External stakeholders include civil society/non-governmental organizations (NGOs), customers (retailers) and consumers, regulators, business partners, suppliers and investors. This matrix illustrates the view of internal and external stakeholders interviewed, with the rankings helping to inform the evolution of our sustainability and responsibility strategy. It is important to highlight that we do not view these issues in isolation, as in many cases they are interconnected.
The Global Sustainability team reports twice a year to the Finance Committee of the Board of Directors to review topics relating to supply chain security and sustainability.
We also have established a Sustainability Council led by our Chief Procurement and Sustainability Officer and is comprised of the Chief Legal & Corporate Affairs Officer, Chief Supply Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Finance Officer and Chief People Officer. The Sustainability Council meets monthly to oversee the achievement of our goals and to progress our broader sustainability strategy. Bi-monthly updates are provided to the CEO.
We consult regularly with an external group of experts as environmental advisors, as well as other key NGOs, to bring in a diverse perspective and to advise on decision making, target setting and program strategies and implementation across the four pillars of our Sustainability Goals. Additionally, we leverage CDP to manage our climate and water governance. Below are our most recent submissions for the CDP investor questionnaires:
To continue strengthening a collaborative approach to sustainable development, we engage in industry associations and organizations such as the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER), AIM-Progress, BSR, the Climate Group, RE100, the 2030 Water Resources Group and Sustainable Food Lab as well as other regional and sector-specific associations.
