Our CR approach

Coats is a global business, operating on the ground in over 50 countries across six continents worldwide.  

“Our global presence enables us to build close relationships with our customers wherever they are located, leverage our expertise from around the world and develop local market opportunities.  But the diversity and complexity of our operations brings many social and environmental challenges.  Some of these are unique to a particular country or location; others apply globally.  It is important that we understand these and our impact on society to manage our business responsibly wherever we operate.

“Responsible business practice has to be core to everything we do and I am proud to lead our CR programme.  Our approach to Corporate Responsibility is encapsulated by seven strategic themes, all of which support and contribute to the achievement of our business goals.  These were developed along with measurable objectives and action plans, for which senior managers across the business are responsible.  Full detail is provided in this section of our corporate website.”

Our activities are coordinated by the Head of Corporate Responsibility and monitored by a CR Advisory Group which is chaired by the Chief Supply Chain Officer. Across the business we have a network of CR Champions, who support our Head of CR to deliver strategy and help implement the action plans.
