Continued Commitment to Improvement

In our 2017 Purpose-led Performance Progress Report, we outlined a series of commitments and clear Purpose-led Performance Goals, which align with and support the UN SDGs. Our Purpose-led Performance approach recognizes that sustainability is a journey, allowing us to continuously build on our success and raise our ambitions as our business and operating landscapes change.

UN SDG Goals

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal Alignment

To demonstrate stakeholder transparency, we have formally contextualized our commitment to the UN SDGs directly supported by our Purpose-led Performance goals.
