Our value chain is connected to countless people, communities, ecosystems and other businesses around the world – that is what it means to be part of the global economy. Our business’ social, environmental and economic impact is significant and far-reaching, and we want it to be as positive as possible.
This means creating positive change along our value chain – from the farms and factories that supply us to our millions of customers. We can do this in our own operations, but what about the parts of the value chain that lie outside of our direct control? Our strategy is grounded on the idea that we must use the size and scale of our business to leverage change and create maximum positive impact and minimum negative impact. One particular focus area is the protection and improvement of human rights along our value chain.
