To understand issues more fully and make better decisions, we talk regularly with customers, colleagues, NGOs and the Government and its agencies.
Following consultation with NGOs and other stakeholders, we've set ourselves 20 ambitious goals, which will help our customers make more nutritious, sustainable and ethical purchasing decisions week in, week out, on a journey to 2020. We want to transform the marketplace for greener, fairer and healthier products. We want to help shift our customers' everyday behaviour in favour of sustainability but still provide the value and quality that they have come to expect. Here are some of the organisations we’ve worked with to develop the plan and who help us live our values.
As part of our long heritage of providing great food at fair prices, we aim to be 'Best for food and health'.
By 'Sourcing with integrity', we aim to provide our customers with quality products at a fair price, in a way that's better for the animals, farmers, growers and workers involved, and which minimises our impact on the environment.
At Sainsbury's, respecting the environment is about doing the right thing. We aim to be the UK's greenest grocer, which is great for our business but even better for the environment.
For us, retailing is about more than quality products and great service. It's also about supporting and helping the communities where we work, and being a good neighbour. We aim for our stores to be at the heart of the communities they serve.
Guided by our values, we've set ourselves 20 challenging sustainability targets to reach by 2020.
