Social Impact
Social Impact

We strive to make a positive difference to society by working in partnership with our industry to address the economic, social and environmental issues that matter to us all.

We are the catalyst for collective action, enabling our industry and its critical stakeholders to gather in non-competitive settings, for constructive debate and action. The industry trusts, supports and guides our work through its continued investment in our Industry Working Groups and the Policy Issues Council. The work we do is funded through our Commercial Insight activities.

We work collaboratively, sharing learnings and best practice to enable people and businesses, large and small, to adapt and progress. Our action leads to tangible positive change, brought to life across four crucial areas of focus: People, Health, Sustainability and Economics.

Together, we drive change to make a significant, tangible difference and deliver social impact.
