Sustainability is unequivocally part of how we do business. As the global economy shifts to become more sustainable we seek to ensure the long run competitiveness of all our operations.
Our sustainability strategy recognises that the Group cannot achieve business success without caring for the social and environmental systems upon which our operations depend. We apply this philosophy throughout our value chain, from suppliers to customers, from products to processes, and from our buildings to our brands.
The initial focus of our sustainability strategy is on driving efficiency, transformation, product-related opportunities and challenges, and supply chain initiatives into an integrated sustainability programme, in order to create enduring economic value. We embed our approach through performance-based management and broad communication with all our stakeholders.
The key commitments which form the foundation of our sustainability strategy are:
- Building a trusted, accessible healthcare network;
- Empowering motivated, passionate people;
- Sourcing products that uphold the integrity of our brand; and
- Lightening our footprint.
Clicks Group takes part in the JSE SRI Top 100 and the Carbon Disclosure Project every year making public the performance of the company in the sustainability field.
We are also pleased to be one of the 43 constituents that made up the recently listed NedbankBGreen Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), based on our environmental credentials and liquidity criteria!Along with investing in the development of our employees, we invest in preferential procurement, enterprise development and socio-economic development projects.
