Our approach to innovation
Hear from Tina Catling, Innovation Director, on how we innovate
Innovation within our business is also enabled through a unique programme that looks at behaviours as well as providing our people with the tools and techniques to unlock ideas.
We have a network of 150 innovation leaders who are embedded in our teams and assist colleagues in taking innovative concepts and ideas from the drawing board to real-world deployment.
Our ideation platform – Echelon – enables everyone to see the specific challenges we are working on so that they can contribute to solving them as well as be inspired by the ideas of others to add their own. Our open, collaborative approach extends to our supply chain partners and beyond.
Our innovation strategy is aligned to our Responsible Business Total Commitments and concentrates on the five key priorities that matter most to our customers, to us, and to the communities we serve – Safer, Faster, Leaner, Greener and Better.
