Press release

Our response to the Black Lives Matter campaign

The events of the last few weeks have highlighted how important it is for us, individually and collectively, to re-affirm the vital role we can play in ending discrimination, inequality and lack of diversity.

It is an obvious statement to make that we recognise there is more we can do, but our response to these issues requires more listening, more understanding and more consideration of how we can best bring about change. 

To make a genuine commitment to our staff, our customers and our communities, we will be taking some time to ensure our efforts go beyond words. We stand firmly against racism, condemning it in all forms, but the discussion in recent weeks has reminded everyone that the issues are broader than specific acts.
