Modern slavery statement


Cancer Research UK exists to beat cancer for a world where people can all live longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer.

Beating cancer is a long term game. We must become a truly sustainable organisation – environmentally, financially and operationally – if we are to achieve our mission.  This means considering the sustainability of our operations, research, fundraising activities, supply chains, investments, products and partnerships.  And being a diverse and inclusive organisation, bringing in the best ideas and being reflective of the people and communities we serve.

Climate change, environmental sustainability and social inequality are critical challenges of our time. We must play our part in tackling them, particularly where they intersect with our mission of beating cancer.

"Sustain" is one of our five strategic pillars and our Sustainability team are focused on how we act as a responsible charity in achieving our mission, working collaboratively with our partners and communities.
