We believe in happier and healthier lives
Challenging modern slavery
In 2017, we published a statement outlining all the steps we have taken to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking practices. We have conducted over 1,200 ethical compliance assessments on new and existing suppliers to ensure that their principles are aligned with ours.
We are a signatory to the Consumer Goods Forum 2020 and have committed to achieve zero net deforestation by 2020. By 2015, Boots UK sourced more than 90% of wood, pulp and paper products from credibly certified or recycled sources.
Advisory panels for sustainability
We have worked with independent experts on the Advisory Panel for Sustainability to identify targets for 2017, which include creating brands with purpose that have both responsible and sustainable supply chains.
We are here to help
As part of our commitment to supporting young people across the globe, we have donated over 15 million life-saving polio and measles vaccines to children in need through initiatives such as Get a Shot. Give a Shot. We are major supporters of the WE Charity, which empowers change with resources that create sustainable impact.
