We are committed to our priorities.

We understand that priorities on paper mean nothing unless they also translate into concrete actions. With this in mind, we are stepping up how we deliver on our sustainability efforts.

We have designed our approach to managing sustainability issues to emphasize transparency and oversight while integrating sustainability thinking into our overall strategy and leveraging the expertise of leaders across the company.

Here’s what it looks like:

  • Oversight at board and management level: The Executive Committee reviews all sustainability programs and practices, and they report to our Board of Directors and its Nominating and Governance Committee quarterly under the direction of our Chief Legal Officer (CLO).

  • Sustainable Development Steering Committee: This committee supports our ongoing commitment to transparency, program development and goal setting when it comes to implementing sustainability practices. The committee includes leaders from across the company and is chaired by the senior director of sustainability.

  • Sustainability Working Groups: We have six working groups, each of which is aligned with one or more of our sustainability priorities. These groups are responsible for helping to collect and report relevant data, assist in program implementation, and advance our sustainability priorities and goals. These action-oriented working groups are led by the dedicated sustainability manager.

And that’s not all. We have taken additional steps to integrate sustainability priorities into our operations:

  • We have a robust, year-round shareholder engagement process that allows us to regularly share our sustainability progress and receive candid and actionable feedback from our shareholders.

  • Our Board of Directors has entrusted our Nominating and Governance Committee with new oversight of sustainability developments and disclosures.

  • We have benchmarked our sustainability priorities to assess our current maturity in these areas and provide a benchmark against which we will measure our progress.

  • We have completed our first greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory.
