Social sustainability means a relentless focus on always improving and leading by example to be a better employer and neighbor. It means investing to improve quality of life through workforce and community commitments. And it means we operate with purpose to solve some of the biggest challenges in our communities.
This year marks a critical transition from our 2020 Targets to our 2030 Sustainability Commitments. We were able to meet or exceed our 2020 Targets by: improving accessibility to wellness programs for our employees; creating diverse slates of job candidates; expanding competency in energy and resource efficiency; inspiring STEM education; addressing nutrition and food waste reduction and supporting housing and shelter needs. We also achieved measurable progress through strategic philanthropy and a culture of volunteerism to help people and communities create a more sustainable world.
Looking forward, we will accomplish our 2030 Sustainability Commitments by applying the best minds and best technology to innovate and respond to the impacts of our changing world.
Our focus is creating opportunity for all by improving workforce diversity and setting bold goals for the future, including achieving gender parity in leadership roles.
The progress and data reported in our 2019 ESG Report, along with our 2030 Sustainability Commitments, are our way of showing how we are challenging ourselves to help solve these global challenges and doing the right thing for our communities, the environment and our business in the process.
