Alliance Boots is delighted to announce the publication of its 2007/08 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report for the year ended 31 March 2008. This report outlines progress and achievements in the main areas of corporate social responsibility activity, including the development of a unified approach across the diverse territories and markets in which the Group does business. It focuses on four main areas: Community, Environment, Marketplace and Workplace.
This year's report is significantly more comprehensive in terms of reported measures than Alliance Boots was able to collate and publish in the first year following the merger between Alliance UniChem and Boots Group. It has been written in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative guidelines and criteria.
Stefano Pessina, Executive Chairman, comments: "We are committed to maintaining our tradition of excellence in corporate social responsibility, both in terms of performance and reporting. As we drive the Group’s performance forward, we always keep in mind our belief that a responsible business is a healthy business."
Please visit the Alliance Boots website (www.allianceboots.com ) where the report is available to view as a microsite within the Social Responsibilities section.
