Our Sustainability Strategy

Our Sustainability Strategy is a Company-wide plan to address and strengthen our performance around relevant key environmental, social and governance issues. The strategy builds on our previous efforts and provides a clear road map to guide our sustainability work over the next four years (2019–2022).

We have aligned our Sustainability Strategy with the relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which serve as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

At the heart of our Sustainability Strategy are three focus areas: Innovation and the Circular Economy; Environmental Stewardship; and People, Safety and Communities.
