Our Corporate Sustainability Report

WE BELIEVE THAT A ROBUST CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY FRAMEWORK, PRACTICES AND CULTURE TRANSLATES TO A STRONG COMPANY THAT DELIVERS FOR ALL ITS STAKEHOLDERS OVER THE LONG TERM.
AT DULUXGROUP, OUR CORE PURPOSE TO IMAGINE A BETTER PLACE ANCHORS OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY.

 

We help our consumers to imagine and create better places and spaces in which to live and work. We do this by manufacturing and marketing a wide range of products that enhance, protect and maintain those places and spaces. We recognise that doing business in a responsible and sustainable way is critical for us to earn and maintain the respect and trust of all stakeholders including our consumers, customers and communities, our environment, our employees and our shareholders.

Whilst DuluxGroup has not formally adopted the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework, this report has been prepared by referencing the relevant core principles of the GRI reporting framework as it relates to our environmental, social and governance practices and performance.

Over the past year, we have made good progress towards our sustainability goals, further improved our safety performance and increased participation in our local communities.
