Design systems for circularity

Created a Circularity Council in 2020 that will focus on improving circularity in the following aspects:
 - Material inputs
 - Product design (i.e., modularity) 
New potential business models to encourage reduction or even elimination of end of life
Increase access to heating & cooling and fresh food
Innovate and commercialize low cost sustainable products for developing markets we currently have no offers for
Established as a goal and integrated into our strategy and innovation efforts for 2021 and moving forward

Progress Toward Target
Achieve workforce diversity reflective of our communities
Increase racial and ethnic diversity of our salaried population in the US from a current 17% to 26% by 2030 — an increase of 50%
In 2020 our full US workforce generally reflects the communities we are part of — 36% of our workforce is racially or ethnically diverse. At the end of 2020, we established new goals to increase ethnic representation in our salaried workforce.
Achieve gender parity in leadership roles
Achieve gender parity in leadership (B7+) positions by 2030 
Increase women representation in management (B5+) from 22% to 35% by 2030
The women’s share of the workforce in the company was flat in 2020 as we launched our new company and had lower-than-normal external hiring levels. For 2021 and beyond, we have established gender goals that ensure we will meet our 2030 commitments for gender parity in leadership positions
