History and Progress

ESG is ingrained in our operating philosophy; it touches our core values and is aligned with our purpose to help keep people healthy, fed, clean, and safe. It’s been a part of our journey since 2008:


2008—we published our first report

2017—we set our first sustainability goals, and have consistently demonstrated a commitment to transparency and continuous improvement, since then

2018—we became a signatory of the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative through the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)

2019—we adopted 'Advancing a Circular Economy' as a sustainability goal

2020—we found our purpose by supplying critical products, all during an unprecedented time

2021—we’ve made good progress on our latest goal set, and are proud to see these successfully conclude at year-end

2022 and beyond—we’ve outlined aggressive new ESG goals for 2025, including net zero direct emissions by 2050
