Governance

Providing oversight through collaboration

 

Group of employees meeting

We implement a robust governance structure to ensure that our Global Sustainability program both meets our company’s social and environmental goals and supports our business.

Strong governance is essential to the work of sustainability. These efforts start with a commitment from our leadership, whose input and oversight play a critical role in driving our progress. For us, good governance begins with a strong Board of Directors that has an independent perspective on our business and company management, including our approach to creating social and environmental change.

Strong governance is essential to the work of sustainability. These efforts start with a commitment from our leadership.
