Warburtons has just published its first Corporate Responsibility Review as it aims to become a more sustainable business in light of climate change.
The family-firm said it has looked at its carbon footprint and the areas it can improve in and has been working to turn its sustainable thinking into business thinking, through working with customers, suppliers and environmental and industry bodies among others.
In the review’s introduction Brett Warburton said the firm would be looking at the big questions of wheat production, palm oil and the ethics of the way it does business.
This will include looking at the way it uses water, energy, transport and packaging in its business.
Warburtons said its vision is to be ‘one of the world’s best family businesses’.
