The Waitrose and John Lewis Divisional Corporate Social Responsibility Committees have oversight of the Divisional strategies and our priority issues. During the year, the Committees received updates on and reviewed progress against the CR Framework.
The Environmental Steering Group focuses on our environmental strategy. It is formed of key subject matter experts from across the Partnership.
Our Constitution provides a framework of governance to safeguard the Partnership’s future, both more broadly, and in terms of our responsibilities as a business. It is supported by a Corporate Responsibility policy and specific standards and guidance on aspects of the CR agenda such as Labour Standards (RSCOP).
