E.S.G.—— For Good Naturally and The Do More Good Plan

We Embed Sustainability into Everything We Do

Given the size and footprint of our company, we understand the influence our choices can have on the world and its natural resources. This is why we continue to work to embed sustainability into everything we do, why we engage our employees to make a difference where they can and why we tap our technical expertise to develop products.

We are committed to managing our impacts as they relate to water and waste. Water is critical for our business.
We generate wastewater as an output of our manufacturing processes, and this water is treated before disposal. According to our company portfolio, we have made significant progress in reducing our water use over time. This improvement was due primarily to the continued application of water-saving initiatives at company facilities. First, we aim to use recycled water for more than half of our nonproduct operations by 2024. Second, we will focus on driving collective action for water stewardship in the communities where we source and operate.
We have made significant progress in implementing our zero waste to land program, which is focused on encouraging our employees to implement innovative solutions to reduce waste by reusing and recycling materials.

Our commitment to ethics and good governance starts with our Board of Directors and Executive Committee and is supported by a strong governance framework.
