Our 2021 reporting theme
The images used throughout this report, from the exquisite hummingbird to the thundering waterfall, from the dainty dandelion to the agile cheetah and iridescent dragonfly, are all very different, but they share certain characteristics, no matter their size:
Strength. Power. Vitality. Energy.
All qualities which embody our strategic intent and arereflected in our theme of 'Advance'.
Inherent in our Thrive25 strategy is the commitment to advance, whether through improved profits, a more engaged workforce, embedding safety as a core value, securing the trust of our stakeholders, increased financial stability or integrating the UN SDGs and science-based targets as strategic objectives.
Equally, the Coronavirus pandemic and Covid-19 required us to advance. To adopt new methods of work; to ensure that we continue to operate while respecting all Covid-19-related guidelines; to respond to the needs of our customers.
Over the last five years we have transformed to become a more unified and focused group with investments in growth markets and product categories. Each year we build on our success, adapting to market conditions but always preparing for the next positive wave. We continue to leverage our market-leading positions across numerous categories to deliver real value so that we can further invest in our growth.
