2021 Sustainability Report

In June 2022, we published our first Sustainability Report to present our 2021 sustainability performance across our priority material issues and highlight the next steps of our CSR journey. With this report, we aim to increase transparency and allow our stakeholders – including customers, partners, employees, suppliers, shareholders, and communities - to better understand our corporate social responsibility approach and mission. The report references the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, Sustainability Accountability Standards Board (SASB) Standards and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
