Sustainability areas

Our eight prioritised areas describe the environmental and social aspects we need to focus on, how we create value, and how we measure our progress.

1.  Products for a more sustainable lifestyle

We have an important role to play in raising awareness of the environmental performance of products and presenting solutions that offer our customers a more sustainable lifestyle.

5.  Materials and chemicals in products
