Approach to Sustainability

Innovation and digitalization underscore our business and sustainability strategy:

  • We continually transform the business, through digitalization, into a new, more sustainable paradigm
  • Our technology drives “win-win solutions” for our firm and stakeholders
  • Innovation bolsters our environmental, social, and economic impact 

Environmental Stewardship

Between 2019–2021 we cut our resource consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by reducing:

We are passionate about the environment and strive to further reduce our GHG emissions and use of natural resources while improving our energy and waste management.
