Robinson’s Above & Beyond report articulates their strategy with the purpose to create a sustainable future for people and the planet with a focus on three priorities: to put the customer first; help people thrive; and drive sustainable growth, all underpinned by their sustainability pledge. The report is a cohesive consolidation of financial and operational performance, demonstrating how the business is focused on creating sustained mutually shared value for all stakeholders.

“2020 was a year that tested us all but I am very proud of how the team has responded, maintaining a safe working environment for all while minimising disruption to our customers and their consumers. Our flexibility, responsiveness, technical capabilities and most importantly our people provide the basis for Robinson to go ‘above and beyond’ in 2021.”

“While 2020 was a year of unprecedented challenges, it was also a year when our purpose came to life bringing achievement and strong performance. In 2020 we introduced a significant amount of change to the business. Our focus in 2021 will be on consolidation, extracting full value while taking the opportunity to refine our business processes.
