Sustainability Governance

Our governance teams are responsible for implementing our Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CR&S) Strategy, and we set out our principles in our Code of Corporate Governance and Code of Conduct.

We have two tiers of governance. The CR&S Executive Committee oversees our progress against these standards. The Board CR&S Committee monitors the Executive Committee.

If any employee discovers any unethical practice, the Code of Conduct explains that they must report it and without fear of resprisals.

The CR&S Executive Committee is chaired by Gerard Manley, who has over 30 years’ experience in the cocoa industry. The activities of the CR&S Committee and the Function itself are managed by Dr Christopher Stewart, Global Head of CR&S. 

Both Gerard Manley and Christopher Stewart report directly to the CR&S Board Committee.
