A note on water: given the global importance of water scarcity, this year we are treating water as an impact in its own right and only report the top-level performance in this section. The commentary can be found in the water section. In practice of course the two areas are interdependent, and water is included in all our environmental policy-making and implementation.

"For us, sustainability is about being ready for the future – planning for how the world will be in 100 years. Climate change, water scarcity, limited resources and energy prices are all going to have an impact on our business. This is why we are taking decisive action now." Paul Walsh, chief executive
