Sustainability approach

We’ve worked consistently to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainability across every aspect of our business.

Corporate responsibility and sustainability are integral to the way we do business. Our commitment to these goals is embedded in our organisation’s mission and values and guides our decisions and long-term investments to ensure we deliver lasting value.

Our business strategy is built on the fundamental principle of creating and sharing value with all of our stakeholders: consumers, customers, communities, employees. This defines how we run our business, carry out our activities and develop our relationships.

Our key focus areas

We track performance and set targets for each of the four pillars of Lanitis Bros’s sustainability approach:

  • Environment
  • Community
  • Workplace
  • Marketplace

Environment

We minimise our environmental impact in the whole value chain through implementing, where appropriate, specific targets to:

  • Reduce our water, energy usage and produced waste
  • Drastically decrease our Green House Gas (GHG) emissions
  • Improve packaging, increase recovery and recycling, decrease waste to landfill
  • Source sustainably
