Dixons Retail takes its responsibility to its stakeholders and the environment seriously. We believe that good sustainability practices make sound business sense, not only to benefit the environment, stakeholders and the communities in which we operate, but also to help us achieve our corporate objectives, fulfill our business plan and reduce costs. During the year the Corporate Responsibility (CR) Committee initiated a sustainability review looking at the current practices and reporting mechanisms of the Group. The review is not yet complete and will be reported on in the next annual CR report alongside any improvements made.
