Reducing the impact we have on the environment has been an important part of the way we’ve run our business for many years. We’ve proved that this approach brings lasting, mutual benefits to our business and the world in which we all live.

This section of our website describes the approach we take for those business operations which have the greatest potential impact on the environment. Most importantly, we don’t consider each environmental issue in isolation. We recognise that they can often be interrelated, as well as extremely complex, and this guides our holistic approach to sustainable decision making throughout our business.

For example, in 2019 we switched our plastic carrier bags to unbleached brown paper carrier bags and, in 2018 Boots UK signed up to the UK Plastics Pact led by WRAP.
