We have developed a clear, board led vision and ESG strategy, marked out with clear responsibilities. Our Executive Chairman, Neil Campling, drives this supported by an ESG team from across the group led by Andrew Sugden.  

The ESG team implements our policies, sets actions and policies and reports on where we are against targets.

Together, they ensure that our company and ESG values are aligned under four key pillars:
