Boots UK Limited (formerly Boots the Chemists), trading as Boots, is a British health and beauty retailer and pharmacy chain in the United Kingdom and operates also internationally including Ireland, Italy, Norway, the Netherlands, Malta, Thailand and Indonesia. The parent company, The Boots Company plc, merged with Alliance UniChem in 2006 to form Alliance Boots. In 2007, Alliance Boots was bought by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Stefano Pessina, taking the company private, and moving its headquarters to Switzerland, making it the first-ever FTSE 100 company to be bought by a private equity firm. In 2012, Walgreens bought a 45% stake in Alliance Boots, with the option to buy the rest within three years. It exercised this option in 2014, and as a result Boots became a subsidiary of the new company, Walgreens Boots Alliance, on 31 December 2014. Boots is one of the largest retailers in the UK and Ireland, both in terms of revenue and the number of shops. It has 2,200 shops across the United Kingdom and Ireland ranging from local pharmacies to large health and beauty shops in 2022. Its shops are primarily located on the high streets and in shopping centres. It sells many health and beauty products, and also provides optician and hearing care services within shops and as standalone practices. Boots also operates a retail website and a loyalty card programme called the Boots Advantage Card

ESG/Ethical Impact

With 2,200 stores and a presence at the heart of almost every high street, we have a unique opportunity – and responsibility – to look after our communities. Our commitment to our customers is that we will be with you, for life. From your first breath to your last, we will be there to offer advice and support – to anybody and everybody who walks through our doors and needs our help. In a post pandemic world there is a lot for us to do as we work towards health equity; we must work together – with our customers, with the NHS, and with society at large – to drive change, making access to healthcare easier for all. We are making a lot of progress and I am extremely proud that this year we joined forces with the NHS to deliver our biggest vaccination programme, helping to vaccinate the nation against both covid and flu viruses, and protecting the most vulnerable. Across the four UK nations we already deliver a range of services on behalf of the NHS but we stand ready to do more. We must work together to relieve pressure from the primary care system and provide access to healthcare services in a safe, convenient and familiar environment. At Boots we believe that healthy communities also need a healthy planet and in this report you will find our published sustainability goals as we work towards a zero carbon future. I am particularly pleased with the progress we have made in making our Boots own brand products sustainable. These are affordable and accessible every day products, because everybody should be able to make sustainable choices. We work with some remarkable partners to help realise our long standing purpose of democratising access to healthcare and nurturing healthy communities. Our thanks go to everyone at Macmillan Cancer Support, The Irish Cancer Society, The Hygiene Bank and The Princes Trust for their continued partnership
