Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility


Edrington is committed to the highest standards of governance and corporate citizenship. Our sustainability and responsibility programme is structured to reach across its operations from the sourcing of raw materials to local consumer campaigns encouraging responsible consumption.

Giving More is an important part of Edrington's culture. There are three strands of Edrington's Giving More programme:

 

Giving More Together

Giving More Together means that Edrington and The Robertson Trust each match the charitable fundraising of employees in Scotland. Every £1 raised becomes £3. In 2015/16 the total donated to good causes through this scheme was £453,000.

 

Giving More International

Giving More International encourages employees to give their time to volunteer in their communities and raise funds for good causes. The International Giving More donates 1% of pre-tax earnings to charities chosen by employees outside Scotland. In 2015/16 international charities received donations valued at £1.37 million.

 

Giving More to Education

This funds the Brugal Foundation, which supports the development and reduces the causes of poverty in the Dominican Republic. The Foundation focuses on making quality education available to talented students who face financial hardship.

Edrington's Giving More to Education team of volunteers from across Edrington's Scottish sites work with schools and colleges in their area to provide career advice and to mentor pupils.

 

 

Edrington's CSR leadership

The sustainability and responsibility committee reflects Edrington's international business and represents Edrington's supply chain and procurement, corporate affairs, our international distribution network, and sales and marketing. The team drives Edrington’s social responsibility agenda, and the company believes that we work best when we work together. Edrington is pleased to be a contributing member of the UK Public Health Responsibility Deal, consistently beating targets on including responsibility messages on our products.

Highest standards of responsible marketing

Edrington directly funds and supports the Drinkaware campaign, and extends its commitment by training all employees working in sales, marketing and communication to adhere to the industry's highest standards, as adopted in the Edrington Marketing Code
