Our approach

Diageo is proud to be a company whose purpose is ‘celebrating life, every day, everywhere’. As the world’s leading premium drinks business, this requires us to think especially deeply about our responsibilities to society and more broadly what it means to be a sustainable company. We are helped in this by our relationships with stakeholders around the world, whose needs and concerns continue to deepen our understanding of our sustainability impacts.

The sustainability of our business relies on creating ‘shared value’, by which we mean bringing benefits to those who are involved in or affected by our operations as well as ourselves. As our business strategy evolves and we focus more resources in emerging markets with different governance environments and stakeholders, our sustainability agenda is becoming even more important. Developing good relationships with these stakeholders will be important in ensuring that we can grow our business sustainably for mutual benefit in these markets.
