Our Sustainability Commitments


Sustainability is central to our business strategy and is ingrained across our operations. With the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) as a guide, we are deploying the full strength of our people, products, services and investments to sustain our customers, our colleagues, our communities and our shareholders.

To truly foster people’s health and well-being, we must reduce inequalities, including advancing gender equality. To drive economic growth and opportunity in our communities, we must invest in a more resilient planet. By making clear commitments, we can track, measure and demonstrate progress toward ambitious goals.
