Commitment to External Initiatives

As a multi-national company with responsibilities to our people, our communities, our industry and the environment in the areas in which we operate, we have been steadily increasing our presence on national, international and industry-specific boards and organizations.1

In keeping with our commitment to social responsibility, we have adopted a number of voluntary codes and other external instruments that we consider particularly relevant to our business. We will continue to monitor the advancement of sustainable development initiatives in civil society to ensure we remain a responsible company wherever we do business.
