The planet is under strain and the choices we make about the products we buy have never been more important. The global population is rising at a time when natural resources are decreasing.
As such, there is increasing pressure on the global food system. The earth's capacity to provide food is threatened by climate change, water scarcity and unsustainable farming practices. We need to find ways to make land more productive and to protect the biodiversity on which all food production ultimately depends. That means building resilient supply chains to ensure long term security of sustainable supply. 20x20 is our roadmap towards making this vision a reality, and through our scale and these commitments, we can make a positive difference throughout the value chain.
In October last year, we published our 20x20 Sustainability Plan. Our 20x20 commitments were deliberately stretching, but already, on year on we’re making good progress in many areas. In others we have more to do, often working with others on issues we cannot tackle alone or where collaboration can allow us to achieve more, faster.
We believe our values give us real competitive advantage, and look to differentiate on this basis for customers, colleagues, suppliers and stakeholders.
We know that people want products and services from companies that they can trust, and believe that doing the right thing can deliver both value and values for all.
It’s all part of our aim to help people Live Well For Less.
Our five values provide the framework for how we do business at Sainsbury's. They guide us in everything we do - from key business decisions to day-to-day activities.
