Our Sustainability Journey

We are constantly evolving to meet customers’ needs, create inclusive and safe workplaces for our people, minimize our impact on the environment and to be a trusted neighbour in the communities we serve. We believe that we can play a meaningful role in the journey towards a cleaner and safer future.

Our ambitions


As a convenience and fuel retailer, we recognize our part and opportunity in contributing to a more sustainable future by using our reach for the greater good. Fossil fuel continues to be a necessity in most of our customers’ lives, but we are committed to contributing to future solutions regarding cleaner alternatives and reduced emissions and to support our customers and communities in this transition along the way.


We are committed to a workplace where all team members feel safe, respected, and able to develop their full potential. With around 14,200 stores and 124,000 employees across the globe, we have great potential to positively impact the social dimension of sustainability. We are making efforts to ensure a safe and inclusive working environment for our employees.


We are committed to be a positive influence on our sustainability journey, contributing to the prosperity of all our stakeholders along the way. Every day, 9 million people visit our sites for fuel, food or other convenience store items. The decisions we make in our procurement processes have an impact on our customers, but also on our entire supply chain. Our decisions impact them financially and will in turn also have environmental and social effects. We recognize the importance of engaging and working with our suppliers to promote environmentally and socially responsible practices.
