CSR business process

Our individual business functions set CSR goals, implement plans, and measure performance. To identify and evaluate issues of concern or opportunities, we conduct an annual CSR materiality assessment. This includes stakeholder engagement on key issues, stakeholder inquiries, benchmarking, industry standards, and policy and regulatory developments. Results inform our annual CSR planning process and are used to prioritize resources and investments.
