ESG – Environmental Social & Governance
Our commitment to responsible business practices, team and community support and environmental stewardship has long been embedded in our business. Together with our values, we view ESG practices as core to delivering long-term growth, value creation and positive impact.
The consideration of these factors in our ESG strategy helps us succeed financially over the long-term. We also consider sustainability in terms of societal and environmental impact while recognizing that the term sustainability may be used in some cases to reference environmental sustainability. Ultimately, we believe that there are potential synergies between being financially sustainable and having positive societal and environmental impact, and achieving that synergy is central to our ESG program.
