    • Our Materiality Approach

      Identifying priorities in corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a complex and thorough process involving a broad mix of tactics, including business introspection, industry analysis, environmental and community impact review, and stakeholder engagement beyond traditional business analytics. Through that mix, we can identify and mitigate risks while leveraging opportunities that improve our business and the world around us. This includes helping our customers achieve their goals while improving the environment and well-being for all in our value chain.
