Brown-Forman’s highest purpose is to enrich the experience of life. We believe we can only achieve this by being responsible in everything we do. This approach is aligned with our recently launched corporate strategy, Building Forever, which will guide our business to our 150th anniversary in 2020.
Here we report the highlights of our social and environmental ambitions, actions, goals, and performance. We define our key issues, explain our management approach, and provide data, examples, and links to further sources.
We produce a full-length corporate responsibility report every two years. Download our 2011-2012 Corporate Responsibility Report, Enriching the Experience of Life, below. We will update our metrics in 2012 and publish our next full report in summer 2013.
