Doing the right thing

It’s important to us that we take Corporate Social Responsibility seriously. We're always looking for ways to do the right thing by each other, by our customers and communities and by the wider world, which is why we always develop, review and update our policies on a regular basis.

Our polices

We have developed our policies in line with our ‘doing our bit’ priorities, which identifies our commitments and plans as part of working towards becoming a more responsible retailer.

Responsible sourcing

At wilko, we source products our customers want, at the best price they can afford, from suppliers around the globe, to deliver quality and value. Sourcing products and services in a responsible way is central to our values and vision, and we work to make sure our sourcing practices will not harm or disadvantage those who produce them and that they have the lowest possible impacts on the environment.

Ethical practices

As a retailer with strong family values, we believe in conducting our business with integrity – acting in an open, honest, fair and balanced way in everything we do. This principle is fundamental to the way we do business and reaches every part of our organisation. It also means we nurture an open and respectful working environment in which it’s easy to voice any concerns over misconduct or dishonest practices without fear.

For even more information, we have this detailed within our Ethical Practices Policy.

For the issues that matter most to us, we have developed specific policies with our Team member voice.

We always aim to comply with tax laws and practices wherever we operate. Find out more in our tax statement.

Environment

Every large business has faced increased environmental challenges in recent years. Here at wilko we understand that change towards a more responsible and sustainable society is needed – and we’re determined to play our part. We look at every aspect of our business to make sure that the direct and indirect impacts of our operation don’t result in lasting damage, and are as environmentally friendly as possible. For the issues that matter most to us, we have developed specific policies.
