Supporting local charitable causes

We donate over £400,000 to charitable causes annually from our central charitable budget and our Group companies make cash or in-kind (non-cash) donations with a combined value in excess of £340,000 each year. Workplace-supported colleague fundraising activities further contribute to our charitable donations. Across the globe, thousands of our colleagues make use of their paid volunteering leave each year, with over 25,000 hours of Company time donated by colleagues in 2023 alone. 

Making a difference in our communities

Whatever their role in the Company and wherever they work in the world, each of our 10,000 colleagues is entitled to three days of paid volunteering leave.

Whether participating in workplace-organised volunteering activities or taking part in independently organised volunteering activities, we want our employees colleagues to be a force for good in our local communities.

We aim to deliver 150,000+ hours (cumulative) of employee colleague volunteering by 2025.
