Pioneering a Sustainable Future

During 2018, we launched our ambitious new strategy for Coats called ‘Pioneering a sustainable future’. This focuses on five priority areas where we can accelerate progress through the targeted investment of capital and resources.

Through our latest actions, we have taken steps to 'Raise our Ambition' for a more sustainable future, that will provide additional areas of emphasis to our existing strategy, targets and the good work already done, to accelerate our progress towards this goal.
