EVERY DAY MATTERS
Our core idea, Every Day Matters, is more important than our individual products. It proudly represents all that we do, what we believe in, care about and stand for. It also leads our social purpose.
REAL LIFE CONNECTION
Every Day Matters gives us a real and human aspect; it helps us design products people actually want; it creates connections between like-minded companies, individuals and institutions; and it motivates employees with a purpose they believe in.
WE FOCUS ON CUSTOMERS
It’s also the basis of how we’ve transformed the way we operate; shaping consumer engagement and smart public policy in a complex global environment.
To our customers it’s a visible assurance of the quality, value and the commitment they can expect from us. To our business it’s the most important and sustainable asset of our organisation.
