Evolving our reporting

Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts are embedded in everything we do, from the decisions we make and the actions we take to the investments we commit to the culture that defines us. Accordingly, we have started to align our community impact and Foundation reporting with the World Economic Forum International Business Council (WEF IBC) Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics as a common way of measuring and analyzing our performance on these issues—across the four pillars: People, Planet, Prosperity and Governance. We firmly believe that standardized reporting inspires confidence, builds trust, and helps scale change—and we will continue to enhance our disclosure in the coming years.
