Closer communities

Bringing people together

At Greene King we’re proud to be at the heart of our communities and want to leave a lasting impact now and for generations to come. As part of our Environment and Social strategic commitments, we’re continuing to build on the great work we do to support our people and our customers by launching Closer Communities, an initiative designed to help everyone in our business bring people together.

Back in 2019 we launched the No One Alone initiative in our pubs to help combat loneliness and reduce isolation. Thank you to everyone who embraced this initiative which is already delivering great community work across the business.
