Sharing Our Progress: 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility Report
2017 Sharing Our Progress CSR Report
Our 2017 Sharing Our Progress (SOP) Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report is now live! Each year, we report on what we’ve accomplished and our progress toward the company’s 2020 CSR goals. These CSR goals are focused on reducing carbon footprint, conserving resources, offering sustainable and healthier products, giving back and supporting human rights. This report previews the company’s 2018 priorities.
Our business has an impact on the environment and the communities where we live and work. We know that we have an important responsibility to minimize our impact on the environment and give back to the communities that do so much to support us. This report details the ways we delivered on our commitments to the environment and our communities.
