Our commitment to ourselves, our peers, our communities, and our world

Other organizations call it Operating Principles, Values, or their North Star, but to us, it’s our Constitution. Twenty-four elements that define and communicate the basic principles of how we choose to show up. It’s more than just words — it’s our commitment.

Our Sustainability Council includes leaders from every department who define and lead our sustainability and ESG efforts.

We work with external Advisors and Thought Leaders to ensure we are addressing critical and material issues within our product development and corporate strategy. In 2021, we will undertake a third-party Materiality Assessment to review and refine sustainability impact areas of greatest importance to our stakeholders.
