Sustainability at Alfa

Alfa's enduring culture has meant that, ever since the company was founded, we’ve focused on creating a positive, sustainable impact on society.

We've always been passionate about sustainability, and it's a reason one of our company values is Create a Positive Impact, whether this is through our charitable giving, our longstanding volunteering program, our increasing environmental efforts, and wide range of Alfa communities.

Our Environmental Impact and Social Impact teams ensure people from across the business can get involved in meaningful activities, as well as making sure issues of sustainability are high on the agenda for our leadership team.

"It is crucial to our people that we contribute to the wider society and run our business in a sustainable manner. We are in a position to provide assistance and expertise to the communities in which we operate, and therefore have an obligation to do so - be that through the provision of training in local schools, coaching for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, or fundraising for our charity partners. It’s also vitally important that we also consider the impact of our operations on the environment. I’m proud of how environmentally conscious we are as an organization."

How Alfa aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Alfa has been proud to align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) for a number of years, using selected goals to focus our sustainability efforts in areas we feel are most relevant to Alfa and our industry. 

The UN SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace, and justice. The 17 goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no-one behind, it is important we achieve them all by 2030.

We’re increasing our efforts to ensure all of our work in the sustainability space relates to one or more of our chosen global goals, and to increase awareness of the goals across our company and beyond.

Our continued focus and committed efforts

We periodically review our adopted SDGs, bringing together a group of passionate people from across the business to decide which are most meaningful for Alfa. Alfa continues to focus on Climate Action and Gender Equality, and we have introduced Reduce Inequalities and Sustainable Consumption and Production as new goals. Underpinning these goals is our basic and fundamental commitment to Decent Work and Economic Growth for all in our ecosystem.
