Sustainability Focus and Commitments
Our commitment to sustainability is fueled by our purpose of helping our customers enrich the beauty, productivity and sustainability of the land. Sustainability is the foundation of our strategic priorities, and we are proud of integrating sustainability considerations across our businesses. To best advance sustainability and guide our strategic actions, we developed four sustainability pillars:
Managing Our Commitment
Our Sustainability Committee develops and implements sustainability initiatives on a global scale, including our 2025 sustainability goals and highlighted additional opportunities for action such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Our leadership team, along with the Sustainability Committee, has responsibility for advancing our sustainability commitments by driving, measuring and reporting related metrics in support of our 2025 sustainability goals.

Supporting United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) serve as a blueprint for governments, businesses and civil society organizations to address the most pressing environmental and social issues globally. We identified six UN SDGs where we are best positioned to make the most significant and meaningful impact – and have provided a summary of our programs and actions to create a more sustainable future.

In 2022, we conducted a materiality assessment to confirm our ESG priorities. A third party conducted a robust process, including identifying relevant ESG topics, mapping impacts to our value chain, engaging internal and external stakeholders, prioritizing topics, and validating the results through a discussion with key members of our Enterprise Leadership Team.

We are an active member in several organizations and peer network groups focused on sustainability issues. These memberships allow us to gain insight on relevant industry-wide issues and provide opportunities to support solutions.
