Achieving the lowest possible carbon foot print and highest possible environmental standards are at the heart of our business strategy. Citrica also believes successful businesses should contribute to society and support their people to be good citizens.
Central to our sustainability strategy are activities that enhance the life chances of young people and those that allow the elderly to enjoy their lives with more dignity. Because we are inspired by the commitment of the people who safeguard our lives and protect our freedoms, we also put military charities at the heart of our sustainability strategy.
