Westmill recognise that we must go above and beyond the basic necessities for social and environmental initiatives, in order to demonstrate that our Sustainability Strategy aligns with our business values.

As the world is rapidly evolving, Sustainability is becoming an even higher priority for businesses to engage with. As such, our Sustainability Strategy covers three key areas:

  • Support Communities
  • Promote Inclusivity
  • Reduce Waste

As a responsible business, we are committed to focussing on these key areas, as we believe this is where we can make positive changes


Aim: Support our communities on both a local and global scale

Priorities:

  • Deliver our commitment to Human Rights
  • Support women through our sustainable livelihoods project with SEWA, India
  • Extend our Sustainable Rice Project in Pakistan to 2024
  • Engage with our communities by launching our volunteering strategy for FY22.

Aim: Promote Inclusivity throughout Westmill’s workplace

Priorities:

  • Understand the true diversity of Westmill and develop action plans to address inequality
  • Train and motivate our teams to actively participate in our inclusion journey
  • Actively develop and support diverse talent with mentorship and career opportunities
  • Widen our internal and external candidate pool through greater transparency and more inclusive recruitment practices

Aim: Reduce overall Waste

Priorities:

  • Reduce food waste and energy by 50% by 2030 in line with the new Courtauld target
  • Improve utilisation of remaining waste by donating short dated stock
