Why it matters
We follow best practices for sustainability management and aim to be clear and transparent about progress toward our goals. We follow accepted calculation methodologies to ensure our data is transparent, accurate, complete, relevant and consistent. We publish our methodology to assist investors and other stakeholders when evaluating our performance.
To the World:
There is a growing expectation of companies to adopt responsible business practices and set sustainability goals.
Companies demonstrate accountability by reporting progress toward public, quantitative targets. When calculation methodologies for those targets are disclosed, external stakeholders can more easily evaluate corporate sustainability programs.
Our sustainability goals are aligned with our pillars. Each of our goals has a series of target metrics against which we assess our progress.
To this end, we have defined a clear methodology for calculating each target metric, enabling us to measure performance accurately and consistently. We believe that transparency is an important driver of trust and accountability with our stakeholders, and in that spirit, we are publishing a summary of our calculation methodology.
