Reflections From Our Chairman
I’m delighted to have this chance to highlight some of the important work in our 2023 Ethics and Sustainability Report, which explains how we’re working towards fulfilling our purpose to make the world a ‘happier place’.
Our purpose is rooted in our heritage as a co-owned business. Being a Partnership sets us apart from conventional businesses; therefore we have unwavering commitment to our employee owned model.
Undoubtedly, this has been a difficult year. Just as it seemed there was light at the end of the tunnel after Covid lockdowns, the conflict in Ukraine brought not only devastation to so many lives in that country, but uncertainty, worry and instability further afield. Natural disasters in Pakistan, Turkey and Syria have added enormously to the toll of suffering. We have done what we can to help with the resources we have.
I want to thank everyone who has had a hand in producing this report, which is testament to the hard work and passion of our Partners right across our business.
