Our Approach and Strategy

In 2021, under the oversight of our ESG Steering Committee, we engaged a third party to conduct our first materiality assessment* to identify the ESG topics that are most relevant to our stakeholders and to our business. By engaging both internal and external stakeholders, we have developed a framework for our management of the identified strategic priority ESG topics and to guide our strategy in making measurable progress. To put our ambitions into action, we have established goals for our strategic priority ESG topics, including carbon reduction goals for 2025.
