Doing business the right way

Doing the right thing, in the right way, is the foundation of our business .

People want to trust the company behind the brands that they love. Our reputation can only be sustained if every one of us is doing the right thing, every day, everywhere.

Diageo is built on the foundations of doing business the right way from grain to glass through a strong commitment to human rights and good governance. It is essential that the right programmes are in place to ensure integrity is embedded in every part of Diageo.

Health, safety and wellbeing

Our global Health and Safety strategy aims to address the wellbeing and the safety of our people. At its heart is our global Zero Harm programme, which is designed to ensure that everyone goes home safe and healthy, every day, everywhere.

Human Rights

Respect for human rights should be a part of everyone’s working day, as enshrined in our Code of Business Conduct. We are continuing to embed human rights into every function of our business, in every country, as part of our commitment to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP), which we signed in 2014.
