Factsheets

We’ve changed how we report to make it easier for you to access the most relevant and up-to-date information. We want to give you a detailed understanding of our approach on a range of issues and topics across our five values as well as our 20x20 commitments.

Best for food and health

At Sainsbury's, we pride ourselves on providing great food at fair prices. Our customers trust us to do the right thing, and with over 24 million customer transactions a week, one of our most important responsibilities is to offer people the best for food and health.

Sourcing with integrity

We recognise the need to source with integrity and aim to provide our customers with quality products at a fair price, in a way that's better for everyone throughout the supply chain, from farmers and growers through to processors and manufacturers, minimising our impact on the invironment.

Respect for our environment

At Sainsbury's, respect for the environment is about doing the right thing. We want to be the UK's greenest grocer, which means we must also help our suppliers and our customers make more sustainable choices. It's good business, and even better for the environment.

Bees and biodiversity

Respect for our environment is one of our five core values. Since 2008, we have been working with customers, colleagues and suppliers to create bee-friendly habitats as part of our Bee Happy programme to help the bee population thrive.

Making a positive difference to our community

For us, retailing is about more than providing great service and quality products at fair prices. It’s also about being a good neighbour and taking an active role in the communities in which we operate.

A great place to work

Our success is down to the 161,000 colleagues working hard in our stores, depots and offices who provide great service to our customers every day. We believe that ensuring Sainsbury's is a great place to work also makes it a great place to shop, and this is fundamental to our continued success.

New Fashioned Values

We already know that in these difficult economic times, family budgets are under pressure, and that people are working harder to make their money go further. Yet we’ve seen that having to think more carefully and thoughtfully about household spending, especially on food, has triggered a set of new, positive shopping behaviours across all socio-economic groups and population demographics.
