Our sustainability priorities.

Our value chain.


Growing a global company on a planet with finite resources demands fresh thinking. By continually looking for ways to conserve water, minimize energy consumption, lower emissions and reduce waste, we’re working to be a positive and creative force in protecting the environment.


Ingenuity flourishes where people are valued. That’s why we maintain a fair, progressive and rewarding workplace, drawing top talent from around the world and giving employees incentives and support to think forward.

Human Rights

Through our membership in the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and our participation in the BSR Human Rights Working Group and the UN Global Compact, we are committed to making respect for human rights part of everything we do.


When more people pitch in, communities get stronger. That’s why we’re committed to creating educational opportunities, supporting programs financially and enabling our employees to support their local communities more easily.
