UN Sustainable Development Goals

Modern sustainability is both holistic and inclusive. We’re looking beyond our own footprint to develop solutions that meet the UN guidelines for sustainable development.

The choices we make today, big and small, will impact our world tomorrow. That’s why our innovation pipeline is closely connected to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development goals, which aspire to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities, and tackle climate change.

How we operate

Sustainability is deeply integrated into our operations, helping us find new ways to do more with less.

We embed responsible and sustainable practices into all the ways we work: supporting and enhancing the safety, security, health, product stewardship, and environmental responsibility of our operations. Our own global footprint is becoming more energy efficient and less wasteful every day as we put digital technology to work in all our systems and supply chain, and we also ensure that our suppliers, whom we view as partners in our success, share our commitment to sustainability.
