As a company, they also recognise the responsibility on them to do what they do responsibly, ethically, fairly and with as little impact on the environment as possible. Further, they recognise the value that diversity brings to society and that business can play a valuable role in promoting it. And they believe that companies that embrace diversity and inclusivity are likely to do better as result. So, they are fully committed to choosing their employees, partners and suppliers purely based on what they bring to the table.
