Sustainability is an ongoing commitment, requiring constant re-evaluation to ensure we remain relevant to current issues. In early 2020, we conducted a thorough review of our sustainability agenda by performing a new materiality assessment. This led to a refreshed set of targets for the year 2025 – 12 that are based on the F&N Group’s targets; and another four supplementary targets for F&NHB.
Most of the environmental targets build on our 2020 goals; however, some are entirely new. Notably, we expect all our key suppliers to comply with our Code of Business Practice by 2025. We are also ensuring that 25% of all our soft drinks and dairies packaging will contain recycled material. The supplementary targets place greater emphasis on areas that we have been prioritising, namely responsible behaviour by our suppliers; use of recyclable material in packaging; creating ESG awareness among employees; as well as promoting their well-being.
