Our Sustainability Commitments

We know that climate change is real and urgent action is needed to create a more sustainable and equitable world. To secure a sustainable future and rise to the ambitions of our purpose, every part of our business takes part in our commitments.

To ensure our strategy will have the positive impact that is necessary, we've aligned our commitments with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and are among the first in our industry, and the world, to undertake the scientific rigor of having our 2030 and net-zero by 2050 emissions reduction goals validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).
