CFS has identified six groups, or Partners, upon whom its continued success is, to varying degrees, dependent. Overleaf is a summary of each of the Partners, together with details of what matters most to each of them in their relationship with CFS; together with an explanation of how performance is measured in these priority areas.
Unlike some organisations, CFS does not define 'The Environment' as a separate Partner. The relationship between business and the 'Natural World' is essentially non-negotiable (in contrast to the relationship with suppliers, staff, etc.). The activities of CFS and its Partners are ultimately governed by nature's limited capacity to generate resources and assimilate waste. For this reason, CFS assesses the degree to which value is delivered to each Partner in an ecologically sustainable (and socially responsible) manner.
