The responsibility for ensuring that Marston’s operates in an ethical manner is that of the Board. In order to ensure that the strategic goals are achieved in a manner consistent with the company's ethics and to help communicate these values to our operations teams the Board setup some years ago a CR Committee headed by the Corporate Risk Director. The Committee sets the CR strategy, defines targets where appropriate, and has oversight of the actions taken by the business to achieve the strategy. The CR Committee is in consultation with the wider business concerning how the company engages with employees, customers, communities, charities and the environment. The CR strategy and progress on action points is reported to the Board.
The CR Committee follows a CR strategy to ensure that supports the Group's long-term growth and commercial objectives. The Committee adapts its approach in relation to emerging trends impacting our customers and employees. The Committee has identified tracks and tracks progress against them for:
|Our priorities||Our goals||Our targets|
|1. We care about our customers’ wellbeing||Food safety, health options, responsible marketing||Supplier audit coverage|
|2. We invest in our people||Health & safety, employee engagement, training and development||Reduction in accidents, engagement scores, training courses completed|
|3. We partner with suppliers who share our values||Ethical sourcing||Adoption of our food suppliers charter amongst out supply chain|
|4. We celebrate our local communities||Charitable support, community involvement||Charities supported financially, and though staff involvement|
|5. We reduce our environmental impacts||Waste segregation, water efficiency, CO2 emissions||Energy reduction. Food recycling. Zero waste to landfill|
The CR vision is aligned with the Group's ambition, purpose and Ways of Working, and aims to focus attention upon our CR goals and actions.
