Business Model

We source the best ingredients responsibly and make health and safety a way of life, giving our customers confidence in the hygiene and provenance of their food and the safety of our working practices. We aim to make a positive difference to the communities and environments in which we operate, acting responsibly to deliver sustainable results.

At Compass we ensure we have regular materiality assessments to identify and explore in depth the issues that matter most to our stakeholders around the world. Through this we ensure we focus our efforts on the key areas of CR that we believe will deliver the best economic, environmental and social outcomes, locally and globally.

Our Pillars

Performance & Targets

In 2015 we continued to drive further improvements across the business and extended the scope of our CR performance reporting.

Our Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) relate to the business strategy and drive the sustainable development of the business. Since we started our CR journey in 2007, we have seen continued improvement in our sustainability performance against baseline data.

We measure and report internally on our performance against each KPI and performance is reviewed by the CR Committee.
